Addressing national police forces during his 72-hour aid and control visit to the coastal zone of the province, the commander recalled that Zaire is considered one of the regions of the country with high rates of crimes related to illegal immigration, so efforts must be redoubled to contain this phenomenon.

"We have to review our way of acting in order to meet the expectations of the citizens, regarding illegal immigration and other related crimes," he said.
