The Secretary General
Its is with regret that i herewith tender my resignation as President of INTERPOL as I do not wish the allegations that have been levelled against me to bring the good work of this august body into disrepute. President Mbeki has granted my request for an extended leave of absence of National Commissioner of the South African Police Services so that I can devote my energies to clearing my name.
It has been an honour and a privilege to serve as President of INTERPOL. I greatly appreciate the support and cooperatiin that the INTERPOL member states and the INTERPOL General Secretariat have shown me during my term of office.
I wish that the organisation grows from strength to strength.
