Air­port se­cu­rity

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

HOME Af­fairs Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral Mkuseli Apleni ad­mit­ted bio­met­ric cap­tur­ing at in­ter­na­tional air­ports had in­creased the pro­cess­ing time, but said the tech­nol­ogy had im­proved se­cu­rity and the ef­fi­ciency of vet­ting peo­ple en­ter­ing South Africa.

Apleni made his re­marks in re­sponse to com­plaints about lengthy de­lays at OR Tambo air­port, where vis­i­tors to the coun­try are hav­ing to wait in long queues be­fore they can get through im­mi­gra­tion and cus­toms.
