Authorities in Senegal arrest man detected by Securiport immigration control system
WASHINGTON Dec. 2, 2016 According to recent media reports in Dakar, Senegal, a French National who was apprehended for acts of armed robbery and wanted by Interpol, was intercepted and detected through Securiport’s Integrated Immigration Control System (IICS). With the intelligent watch-list management database implemented at the International Airport of Dakar, security authorities on-site were alerted immediately and were able to intercept the suspect. Since the apprehension of the Central African citizen, Otto “Prince Charming” Longola has been imprisoned in Rebeuss jail while awaiting his December extradition to France.
African Media further reported that the alleged criminal, known for allegedly impersonating a businessman through a fictitious company, was highly sought by Interpol at the request of the court of Bordeaux. Upon Longola’s arrest, French officials asked for the extradition of the Central African citizen that was captured at Dakar International Airport.
Throughout 2016, Securiport has successfully aided officials in several African countries with apprehending international criminals on the international watch lists. Similar to the latest incident involving Longola, numerous arrests have occurred at the Senegalese airport through the use of Securiport’s traveler screening tools.
