The Ministry of Defence has warned against malicious use of military fatigue, with focus on facemasks.
“A few physical attacks on peaceful citizens have been recorded here and there across the country by individuals wearing anti-Covid-19 masks inscribed ‘MINDEF’ or ‘GENDARMERIE’,” Defence Minister, Joseph Beti Assomo noted.
He went on to warn against unauthorised use of the masks manufactured by the logistics department of his ministry.
The fatigue, he stated, is made “… for the sole use of the ministry and civilian personnel regularly listed in the Ministry of Defence registers”.
Minister Beti Assomo warned that unauthorised use of the masks would attract sanctions from security personnel.
“Defaulters,” he noted, “shall henceforth be arrested in flagrant delicto by the National Gendarmerie and the Military Security, who shall take them off immediately without prejudice to legal proceedings”.
