The Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization has suspended three officers on allegations of compromising border security at Kpassiagisiah and Yealla Port of entries in Zorzor District, Lofa County.
A BIN release said the alleged act is in violation of section 15.0 of the BIN Code of Conduct “Integrity Related Misconduct” and section 4.1 of the Standard Operational Procedures “Portraying Good Image”.
“The BIN authority has dispatched a high level team of senior officers headed by the Director for Operations and composed of officers from Protective Internal Security Division (PISD), the Inspectorate Division and the Intelligence Section to launch a full scale investigation into the suspected act that is counterproductive to the Joint Presidential Task Force Mandate on issues of border closure and finding from this investigation will be made known to the general public,” the release said.
BIN assured the public that it is committed to upholding the highest level of professionalism regarding border security and integrity and will not allow any of its officers to engage in acts that would compromise the Bureau’s integrity.
The Bureau of Immigration warns that any officer caught in compromising the issues of border security will be dealt with drastically in keeping with the BIN Code of Conduct and the Standard Operational Procedures.
