Vogelsanger stated this while speaking to newsmen after a meeting with the Head of UNOCI, Ms Aitcahtou Mindaoudou in Abidjan.

He said that the meeting with UN mission head was to discuss areas of cooperation in security and crime control in the country.

The envoy said that Switzerland remained committed in providing support to the UN mission in the country to enable it carry out its mandate.

“During my meeting with the UNOCI head, we identified the need to step into the fight against cybercrime and financial investigation.

“We will involve the Swiss police and work out possible integration with the Ivorian security agencies,’’ he said.

Also speaking, Mindaoudou said that the UN mission was ready to work with genuine partners to ensure the realisation of its mandate.

“The issue of cyber-crime has become worrisome in recent times. I am sure we will give it the required fight with the right collaboration,’’ she said.

She called on Ivorians to avoid acts capable of igniting bad feelings among the population.

“Peace is the first step toward development, that is what we all need to pursue, it is a duty we all owe the society,’’ Mindaoudou said. (NAN)
