Burmese police have brought in Interpol to help with security measures at Rangoon International Airport ahead of the 24th ASEAN Summit due to be hosted in Burma this weekend.
Police Lt-Col. Hla Myint, the deputy-director of the police’s International Liaison Department, told DVBon Tuesday that three representatives from Interpol have been working alongside Burma’s police and immigration officers at the airport since 3 May.
“We have three Interpol officers helping to check arrivals at the airport. They will stay until the end of the ASEAN summit,” he said. “They may be able to prevent malicious acts in our country by employing technology to verify passports and fingerprints.”
He said the three Interpol officers deployed at the airport are a South Korean, a Canadian and a Slovenian.
The police are also assigning teams for security in Naypyidaw, including bomb disposal units, said Hla Myint.
