Czech Interpol VP Šárka Havránková seeks presidency

Interpol Vice President for Europe Šárka Havránková is a candidate to head the international police organisation after Kim Jong-yang of South Korea steps down.

Havránková, who holds the rank of colonel in the Czech Police, is the first person from this country to be in the running to lead Interpol since it joined the organisation in 1993.

Interpol is due to elect a new president at its General Assembly in November, in the Turkish capital Istanbul.
