Tripoli, 11 April 2013:
In its bid to integrate former SSC members into the police force, only 70 percent of those whose . . .[restrict]applications for higher grade posts have been assessed have so far made the grade.
The Ministry of the Interior announced today that out of 1,910 applications, 1,332 had been accepted and would begin training.
Candidates were rejected on several grounds, including medical tests.
It is not known if those who applied will be refused their SSC salaries. The ministry had earlier said that back salaries to SSC members transferring to the police would be paid in full, but only if they were accepted into the force. It specifically said that failing a medical test would mean they would not get in and therefore not be paid.
