City surveillance camera systems (MOBESE) are to be installed in Kyrenia and Nicosia early next year.

An agreement has been signed between the TRNC Ministry of the Interior and Turkey’s Interior Ministry for the planning and feasibility for the city surveillance camera system.

TRNC Interior Minister Kutlu Evren said that in order to increase public security, the camera system will come into force so that the police force can improve its information system, eliminate some of the problems that are being experienced on streets and increase internal security.

Evren added that the camera systems will come into force in Kyrenia and Nicosia by February, at the latest.

Commenting also on the recent protocol signed between north Cyprus and Turkey to construct new prisons, Evren said that the new prison building will be constructed behind the BRT building and will be an open and closed type of prison, with the capacity to hold 750 inmates.
