The SSR International Airport will soon be equipped with a filing system for passengers – the Passenger Information System – in order to monitor drug-trafficking. The Prime Minister’s Office has sent out tender offers last week; the deadline is December 17.
The Passenger Information System will be the means to identify people having had criminal records. Airline companies will have to inform the Passport and Immigration Office of the passengers before the latter’s departure or arrival. Those having police records – for instance, for drug trafficking – will then be identified there and then.
Furthermore, facial recognition cameras will be installed to provide additional support to the system. Other devices meant to accomplish similar purposes will also be set up at the airport.
