Challenging Acts of International Organizations Before National Courts

This chapter suggests that INTERPOL's informal origins and the dual status of its National Central Bureaus contribute to an approach by national courts that seems not to be influenced by either a monist or dualist tradition of incorporating international law into the domestic legal order. Courts recognize the need to avoid interference with the work of INTERPOL and dispose of the preliminary objections to jurisdiction and admissibility by application of the law of the forum. In the only case that reached the stage of merits, the substantive law of the forum was used as the primary source for fencing off INTERPOL. At a certain point, a headquarters agreement with France and US Presidential Executive Order were needed to secure non-interference. As a corollary, INTERPOL responded by establishing the Commission for the Control of INTERPOL's Files (1982) to provide adequate alternative means to address the grievances of individuals and entities.
