Mary Broh, Director of Passport at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, says she has taken measures at the Foreign Ministry to tighten grip on floating passports in the country and is making sure applicants receive their passports on time.
Speaking on a phone-in talk show recently on Truth FM, Director Broh said her administration has cultivated measures to prevent people from illegally handling Liberian passports, especially diplomatic passports.
She said as part of the measures, the department has written the Commissioner of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN), to furnish the passport division with a full listing of naturalized Liberians to help them recognize criminals who may want to fraud the process.
Besides, she disclosed that she has secured the services of immigration police and personnel of national security agency who have already been deployed at the Bureau to arrest and prosecute those who may want dupe the government.
Madam Broh further stressed that her administration has developed an employees networking system that put into place a rapid processing of one's passport.
She noted that her concern was to set up a comprehensive working system that would avoid strangulation or delay in the preparation of Liberian passports.
