Hon. John Saldivar hands over keys to Brigadier General Dario TapiaOn Thursday May 17th, Minister of National Security and Defense, Hon. John Saldivar handed over 5 Meilun brand motorcycles, four being 'mud cycles' and the other the highway type.

Minister Saldivar explained that the cycles, which are worth sixteen thousand five hundred dollars, are part of the Ministry's move to better equip the BDF. He said that since he took up the ministry, he's been touring the various sections and for the BDF, the issue of mobility was one that needed to be addressed.

The five motorcycles were handed over to the Intelligence Cell of the BDF and will be used for intelligence gathering as well as being able to deploy personnel to areas where traditional modes of transportation cannot access.

Minister Saldivar has committed to better equip the BDF as well as other areas of his ministry during his tenure in that office.
