BIN Maryland Official Appeals For Support
By John Bropleh, LINA Maryland County Correspondent
HARPER, April 15 (LINA) -Deputy Immigration Commander of the Maryland County Detachment is appealing to Justice Ministry authorities to address the current lack of logistics and accommodation problem facing the detachment.
Col. Emmanuel Paye said the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) officers assigned in the county are finding it difficult to perform their duties as a result of these constraints.
He told the Liberia News Agency at the weekend that the detachment lacks computers, generators and communication gadgets, among others.
Col. Paye disclosed that the officers are housed in private homes in the local communities due to lack of living quarters for them.
Meanwhile, he is suggesting the assignment of at least 10 motorcycles to the detachment to enable it carryout effective border patrol in the county.
Maryland County shares border with Ivory Coast, where political and security problems have generated cross-border attacks and influx of refugees from that country into Liberia.
