In response, the Southeast Customs Regional Director, Colonel Saliou Diouf, reaffirmed his commitment to work along with the Governor, in perfect synergy with other Defense and Security Forces. He stressed that the long appreciation of the work carried out by customs’ officers "constitutes, for each agent, an additional reason to keep on being vigilance and compliance with instructions".
