Tripoli, 13 May 2013:
Despite the RPG attack on the Ports Authority building in Janzour yesterday, the company . . .[restrict]won’t change its policy on security, which is not to have any.
“We have no security here, and we still won’t be getting security for the building,” the President of the Ports and Maritime Authority, Sharafeddin Banghazi, told the Libya Herald today.
“If we have any problems with people in the vicinity, we talk to them,” Banghazi said, “we are confident that as long as we are doing the right things, we don’t need security.”
He said that did not think the RPG attack on the glass-fronted building was malicious, especially since it took place at 7.30 am, before staff had arrived. He said the attack could have been drink or drug-related but was probably the result of someone wanting to try out a weapon. “This is such a big target, he couldn’t miss,” Banghazi said.
He said the attack was depressing and that the damage would be covered over, until it could be properly repaired. [/restrict]
