Sri Lanka teams up with INTERPOL to increase border security on June 11, 2012 published the following:

“Jun 11, Colombo: Sri Lanka, in an effort to boost border security and curb illegal migration teamed up with the INTERPOL, the world’s largest international police organization Monday to launch South Asia’s first Integrated INTERPOL Database Service.

The Sri Lanka Immigration Border Control Systems linked up with INTERPOL to launch the program under the patronage of Secretary Defence and Urban Development Gotabhaya Rajapaksa today at the Defence Ministry.

The project to prevent illegal immigration and emigration is being jointly implemented by the Department of Immigration and Emigration and the Sri Lanka Police.

According to the Defence Ministry, the system is capable of storing stolen or lost travel documents and nominal information which contains the records of known international criminals with photographs and fingerprints. It can even be used online or offline.

Under the new programme, the Department of Immigration and Emigration has the ability to link live with the data network of INTERPOL and obtain information on all individuals entering and leaving the country.

The service was developed under the directions of the Defence Secretary and funded by the Government of Canada.

Addressing the ceremony, the Defence Secretary has said that this is another step in strengthening the border security and thanked the Government of Canada for funding the project.

Project Manager of International Organization for Migration Shantha Kulasekara introducing the project has said that main aim of the project is linking the data of INTERPOL to the data of the Sri Lanka’s Department of Immigration and Emigration. Through this the Sri Lankan Immigration and Emigration officials have the ability to link live with the INTERPOL data of about 32 million lost and missing passports.”
