Correction: NNA said Elias Murr was appointed the head of the INTERPOL Fund (Not the Interpol as stated by MTV) for a Safer World for a seven-year term.

INTERPOL’s current President is Mrs Mireille Ballestrazzi, elected at the 81st INTERPOL General Assembly held in Rome in November 2012. Mrs Ballestrazzi will serve as President until 2016.
Not true… please review your sources !!!
george is right.. this is fake news…at least not President of Interpol..
President of a fund within Interpol
NNA said Elias Murr was appointed the head of the INTERPOL Fund for a Safer World for a seven-year term.
I corrected it and the sources were MTV, LBC and Jadeed 🙂
You’d think MTV would know about a Murr more than other networks but LBCI and Al Jadeed confirmed it so I posted about it 😉
It’s just weird that they would post something like that without verifying it.
I still have yet to see a credible source. I went to the Interpol page, to Fund for Safer World, to google. All I could find is Lebanese news sources reporting. Hell the original source was first reported by Al Joumhouriyah…
I like being proud of Lebanese who accomplish things, but this is just horrible and shameless
WHERE ARE THE SOURCES THAT ARE NOT LEBANESE SOURCES OH LAWD!!!?!?
Elias el Murr is decent ?? he is one of the most corrupt ministers ive seen. you remember all the movies he did and stories he created to show that he was doing a good job . 3ebed el shaytan ?? and when he went to a bank like superman to save the day ??
He is way better than Marwan Charbel but i won’t call him decent. His father is by far one of the most corrupt politicians in our history and Elias El Murr is not that different from his father. Check his mention in Rabiyeh, it is bigger than a football court.
I think he meant mansion.
You guys really make me laugh… He is a real Man, tell me who get bombed and still serves the country with all humility and courage. All the others are cowards compared to him.
He used to be Elias Hobeika student and protégé… remember him? he is the guy behind Sabra and Chatilla massacres along with hostile mafiosi showdowns in Zahlé etc…
If we had more people like him We, Lebanese, would not be in such world of shame. I am not even going to ask who you like or dislike. It is a honor for us to have this man!
FOR THOSE THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY MEANT BY PRESIDENT OF INTERPOL….
THEY MEANT: THE PRESIDENT OF INTERPOL IN LEBANON AND NOT WORLD WIDE.
umm, no, not that.
President of His home interpol … his Yard maybe 🙂
He’s a great man and he deserves to be the president according to 82 countries not only for us we are proud he’s Lebanese it’s just a start and a good start looking forward in the future and time will show it
hi guys this is the official press release here ;
22 October 2013 – Media release
INTERPOL Executive Committee unanimously endorses creation of INTERPOL Foundation for a Safer World
Lebanon’s Elias Murr to become inaugural President of the Board of the Foundation
CARTAGENA DE INDIAS, Colombia – INTERPOL’s Executive Committee has unanimously endorsed the creation of the INTERPOL Foundation for a Safer World. It will open its first offices in Geneva and Paris in 2014.
The decision came ahead of INTERPOL’s 82nd General Assembly currently underway in Colombia.
Mr Elias Murr, the former Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Interior and Minister of Defense of Lebanon, will become President of the Board of the INTERPOL Foundation for a Safer World for a seven-year term.
Mr Murr will be in charge of promoting and reinforcing INTERPOL’s strategic priorities in the fight against terrorism and transnational organized crime, and of supporting INTERPOL’s efforts to create a safer and more secure world.
INTERPOL thanks Mr Murr for his commitment to INTERPOL and its vision of a safer world through enhanced international police cooperation worldwide.
I guess all Satan worshippers worldwide better start hiding.
Now the Interpol will definitely go bankrupt .. This trait runs in the family of all Lebanese high ranked officials with no exception
PLEASE CHECK THE SOURCE OF THE ARTICLE
LOGICALLY HOW SOMEONE WOULD BE APPOINTED AS THE HEAD OF INTERPOL WHILE HE WAS NEARLY ASSASINATED
