Elias Murr, president of the Interpol Foundation, will be in Monaco to discuss “My life in service for the fight against terrorism” as part of the Monaco Méditerranée Foundation (MMF) conference series. The Monaco resident is a security consultant to the government.
The INTERPOL Foundation promotes a more secure world where people can live and travel without the threat of crimes and citizens and companies flourish from their economies. Its mission is “to engage governments and companies to support INTERPOL’s work in building a safer world.”
The son of a former Lebanese deputy prime minister and interior minister, Murr followed in his father’s footsteps from 2000 to 2005. According to The Guardian, in 2005, then prime minister, he was the target of an assassination attempt in Antelias, 5 km north of Beirut. Twelve people were injured and one person killed by a 20-kg explosive device.
Entry to “My life in service for the fight against terrorism” on October 12 is free but attendees must register in advance via the MMF website. The French-language evening begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Salle des Arts at One Monte-Carlo Conference Center and is sponsored by J.B. Pastor & Fils, Jutheau Husson and SBM.
Previous discussions in the MMF conference series have included “Coronavirus: where is medical research at? What are the economic consequences?” by Denis Duverne and Professor Gilles Kepel speaking on “From the Middle East to jihadism in Europe.”
Founded in 2004 by Enrico Braggiotti, MMF aims to promote the image of Monaco and holds a spot in the cultural and intellectual life of the Principality.
