The assembly brings together police representatives from 194 countries. The new president has often been targeted by humanitarian organizations and international organizations on charges of torture and ill-treatment of political prisoners and dissidents, including Ahmed Mansoor, but also of the British academic Marc Hedges, accused of espionage in 2018 and sentenced to life in prison. Hedges was later pardoned under pressure from London, while Mansoor is still in prison.

Al-Raisi’s candidacy had sparked protests across Europe, especially in France and Germany where parliamentarians wrote to their respective governments asking for him to be boycotted. The Emirati general takes over from the Korean Kim Yong Yang, who had her term of office extended by one year due to Covid, and beaten the EU’s favorite candidate, Sarka Havrankova, outgoing vice president, chief of police of the Czech Republic whose career began in the footsteps of Belgian pedophile Marc Dutroux.
