De Ware Tijd interviews Meg Hobbins about Gilmore Hoefdraad

Surinamese Newspaper De Ware Tijd interviewed Partner Meg Hobbins regarding the due process rights of her client, former Minister of Finance in Suriname, Gilmore Hoefdraad.

"If Mr Hoefdraad does not get access to the courts in his own country, he will be entitled and well positioned to pursue his claims internationally," says Hobbins.

Meg Hobbins advocates for clients denied due process in their home countries. She creatively assesses the most effective avenues for clients to access justice, regularly representing clients before Interpol, The United Nations Higher Commission on Refugees (UNHCR), and the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention.

Ocean Drive highlights Sandra Grossman

This Hispanic Heritage Month, GYH celebrates and honors its work with attorneys and clients in Miami, a city enriched by its 70% Hispanic population. GYH attorneys also share a personal connection to the Hispanic population and immigrant community at large.
In the latest issue of Miami publiction Ocean Drive, GYH Partner Sandra Grossman is spotlighted for her work in international human rights. She writes, “I’m an immigrant to the United States myself. My parents were political refugees from the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile and were forced to immigrate. I arrived in the U.S. when I was 8 and later became a U.S. citizen. My background as an immigrant allows me to understand first-hand the importance of competent and compassionate legal advice. At the same time, I’m keenly aware of the contributions immigrants make and the challenges that they face. I believe everyone deserves a chance at a better life.”

Interpol’s New Leadership Demonstrates Lack of Will for Reform

by, Sandra Grossman and Ted Bromund

In their recent article in The National Interest, Sandra Grossman and Ted Bromund discuss the troubling election of new INTERPOL president Ahmed Naser al-Raisi, a UAE general facing credible accusations of torture. INTERPOL is frequently criticized by human rights activists for its propensity to be manipulated and abused by dictatorial and autocratic nations. The election of al-Raisi has done little qwell those concerns. Grossman and Bromund also explore the obligation of the U.S. to be a leader in maintaining the integrity of INTERPOL, starting with the TRAP Act.

LA Times Quotes Sandra Grossman on INTERPOL Abuse Case

The Los Angeles Times published an article last week detailing the case of a Guatemalan pastor, Hugo Gomez, who has been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) since 2019 based on an unsubstantiated Red Notice. The article uses this case to shed light on the little-known but troubling situation of INTERPOL Abuse. Unfortunately, situations like Gomez' are all too common. Autocratic, corrupt or unstable governments sometimes use INTERPOL's system to issue Red Notices for people they see as in conflict with their regimes, such as political dissidents, activists, business tycoons, etc. In the U.S. ICE often treats these Red Notices as arrest warrants, even though INTERPOL clearly states in its constitution that a Red Notice alone is not grounds for an arrest. Partner, Sandra Grossman, was quoted by the LA Times stating,

"Using red notices for predominantly political, military, racial or religious reasons is against Interpol’s constitution. But some countries, including Russia, Venezuela and China, are known for deploying red notices against political opponents who flee persecution,"... “ICE does their bidding for them by putting these individuals into deportation proceedings."
