Minister of the Interior Lee Yi-yang (李逸洋) demanded yesterday that the Aviation Police Bureau rigorously carry out standard operating procedures to prevent any further incidents of inbound passengers slipping through checkpoints at CKS International Airport. Lee issued the demand during an inspection of Aviation Police Bureau operations following three such incidents in recent months. He was accompanied by Hou Yu-ih, (侯友宜) director-general of the National Police Agency, on the visit to the airport's terminals to inspect passport control operations and observe drills to simulate the interception of inbound passengers trying to slip through the checkpoints. Lax controls at the airport first came to light when a Canadian man evaded passport security checks on Feb. 10. On March 28, an unidentified man also slipped though the security checks at the airport. The third case involved a Vietnamese laborer who on April 15 fled while being interviewed by an airport policeman.
