Soldiers hinted as backup for immigration officers

Word tonight that soldiers could be deployed to the airport if another situation of high absenteeism occurs.

While the national security minister did not confirm this, he did not deny it either.

Minister Dillon today in the parliament outlined some of the contingency plans that will be put in place to avoid a recurrence of what happened on November 12th.

And one of those includes replacing some of the immigration personnel with automated kiosks.
