Politics - Mikati praises ISF's new conduct code, vigorous action.

NNA - 12/01/2012 - The Lebanese Security Forces have proven thus far to be highly active and robust, Prime Minister Najib Mikati said on Thursday in a word he delivered at the launching ceremony of the ISF's newly introduced book of conduct.

The little blue book, which is now required reading for all ISF members, explains the obligations and ethical standards to be followed by all policemen. Written in English and Arabic, it includes subject headings such as professional duty, honesty and integrity, impartiality and discipline.

"Lebanese Security Forces, namely the Internal Security Forces, have proven to be highly active at the national protection level, without being prejudice to any region over the other," the Prime Minister said.

"This security force, along with other security apparatuses, now represent a true safety network for all Lebanon," he added.

Touching on the simmering political scene, Mikati highlighted the importance of augmenting political stability, so as to become a safety bridge and a route towards permanent political stability.

"This is only to be achieved by means of political dialogue which also serves as an umbrella safeguarding civil peace." Mikati called for bolstering cooperation between security forces without wagering for the interest of this or that side. "We are not running a competition between security apparatuses," he said.

Furthermore, the Prime Minister said security forces should be up to the Lebanese people's trust and expectations "by ensuring a state of comfort and stability, the key for economic development, more investments, and sustained growth." R.H.
