UN Donates to Immigration

The United Nations Women in Liberia has donated computers and other materials worth over US$45,000.00 to the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) to enhance productivity.

Abraham Sambula, Deputy Representative for UN Women in Liberia said the donation was a mainstream capacity-building process for the bureau, particularly women officers. He emphasized the need for continued women empowerment to be taken seriously because it goes with hard work and productivity as they are backbone of every nation.

“The request was made when we held training for 20 BIN women officers, and it could not be down-played, as improving the standards of women’s work has been paramount in the UN system,” Sambula noted.

In response, both Commissioner Alba Williams and acting Justice Minister Freddie Taylor paid tribute to the UN Women in Liberia, expressing the belief that the donations would enhance the work of the bureau which has been lagging behind in the technology arena for a very long time.

Meanwhile, two BIN officers were involved in a tragic motor accident recently. The accident left one killed and the other critical on admission at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Monrovia.

The accident reportedly occurred during a border patrol in Lofa County during the course of last week. Colonel Albert Karnly, Director of Security of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization, who made the disclosure to the media, failed to mention the names of the victims.

However, he said one of the victims (deceased) was buried on Saturday following the removal of his body from the Samuel Stryker Funeral Home, while the other is responding to treatment at the John F. Kennedy Hospital in Monrovia, writes TKS.
