Tripoli, 15 April 2014:
The Ministry of Interior has unveiled new plans to boost security in Benghazi, including the . . .[restrict]provision of CCTV cameras and equipment to detect explosives and weapons.
Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, acting Interior Minister Saleh Maziq called on Ministry employees to use all resources at their disposal and redouble efforts to secure the country.
Security in the capital would also be beefed up, he said, with a more visible security presence on the street of Tripoli. Maziq added that the Ministry of Interior was still working to bring weapons and members of revolutionary brigades under its control.
Maziq asked for all funding allocated to the ministry to be made available as soon as possible, so these plans could be put into action.
He also said workers needed to make a personal effort to combat a culture of absenteeism which, he claimed, had led to the dismissal of some 600 security personnel in recent months. [/restrict]
