...BIN Officers Cautioned
The Commissioner of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) has warned Immigration officers assigned at the Robert International Airport and Owengroves in Grand Bassa County not to compromise their duty in the wake of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia.
Commissioner Lemuel Reeves said his administration will not tolerate business as usual. The BIN Chief had gone at the RIA and Owengrove detachments Last Friday to provide protective equipment for the officers
He told the officers to check everyone who passes through these entry points irrespective of status.
Commissioner Reeves warned the officers against taking bribe in order to grant suspected Ebola victims access.
He said any officer who will be guilty of such act would be punished severely. The BIN boss told the officers that they are critical to the eradication of the Ebola virus from Liberia.
Commissioner Reeves urged his officers to collaborate with other security personnel and health workers assigned at these entry points because according to him the fight against Ebola requires collective efforts.
The officers lauded BIN authorities for the protective equipment and promised to use them for the intended purpose. Items donated include gloves, buckets among others.
