Liberian Coast Guard To Man Buchanan Port

MONROVIA, October 23 (LINA) -The Liberian Coast Guard (LCG) is expected to provide asset security protection to the M/V Vega, a container ship conveying a huge supply of assorted equipment and supplies, at the Port of Buchanan.

The equipment and supplies are for use by the American military in Liberia on “Operation United Assistance.”

A Defense Ministry release noted that the visit by the ship will be an opportunity for professional divers of the LCG to provide direct security for high value assets and conduct Hull Inspection of the M/V VEGA at the port.

This gesture on the part of the LCG signals to various shipping agencies that the force is committed to ensuring waterside port security, the release said.

The M/V VEGA (Marshall Islands registry) is expected to berth at the Port of Buchanan on Friday, October 24.

The LCG was reactivated on February 11, 2010, functioning in partnership with other government agencies like the Bureau of Maritime Affairs and National Port Authority, among others.
