WASHINGTON- The Interpol-United States National Central Bureau (USNCB), a component of the U.S. Department of Justice, has requested the issuance of an Interpol Red Notice seeking the world-wide location, apprehension, and extradition of Cesar Armando Laurean-Ramirez. Laurean-Ramirez is the North Carolina Marine wanted for 1st Degree Murder of a missing Marine from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Working closely with the investigating agencies, the Onslow County Sheriff’s Department and the Onslow County District Attorney’s Office, as well as the FBI, the USNCB broadcasted an international “All Points Bulletin” to law enforcement agencies in 185 countries and the Interpol General Secretariat, located in Lyon, France on January 26, 2008.
This information and the Red Notice are placed in law enforcement databases in Interpol’s member countries to assist law enforcement officers in locating the fugitive. If the fugitive is located, foreign police authorities will immediately notify the USNCB, and in many countries will detain the fugitive. The Red Notice is the formal wanted notice published by the Interpol General Secretariat and contains information on the fugitive, the facts in the case, and the charges filed against him by Onslow County authorities. The Notice is distributed to all member countries in four official languages, English, Spanish, French, and Arabic and remains in effect until the fugitive is captured.
“The Interpol Red Notice is a powerful tool that can assist North Carolina authorities in locating and apprehending Laurean and is placed not only in foreign law enforcement databases and border lookout systems, but the central database queried by all 186 Interpol member countries. We are here to assist the authorities in Onslow County at an international level to locate and bring this fugitive back to North Carolina to stand trial,” advised Martin Renkiewicz , the Director of the USNCB and a senior Department of Homeland Security law enforcement official.
Once published, this Red Notice will also appear on the public Interpol Web site, <http://www.interpol.int> for information and possible assistance of citizens worldwide.
