Police Form G20 Summit Security Committee

Posted March. 06, 2010 09:24,   


The National Police Agency launched yesterday a Group of 20 summit security committee and started discussion on plans to guard and protect guests.

Chaired by Commissioner General Kang Hee-rak, the committee will decide key policy measures in overall security for the November summit in Seoul.

The committee for the Group of 20 summit was formed about two months earlier than the corresponding schedule for the 2005 APEC summit in Busan. This means police will make every effort to assure safety and security at the G20 summit.

Committee members discussed improvement of the police anti-terrorism policy unit and the management system for terrorism suspects, international exchange of information including those on terrorism, and measures to minimize public inconvenience caused by traffic control.

“Considering previous G20 summits, we expect some inconvenience for the public, such as massive demonstrations by anti-globalization NGOs, risks of terrorist attacks, and traffic delays,” Kang said.
