Status of INL-funded Equipment ------------------------------
1. (U) There has been no change in the status of INL-funded vehicles provided to the Turkish Grain Board (TMO), dogs provided for Turkish Customs, computers for Turkish Customs and TMO, and intercept equipment for the Turkish National Police (TNP) since report made in reftel B. Regarding the status of TNP communications and miscellaneous equipment, TNP officials have informed us that the equipment we provided in the mid-1990s is in good condition, but because it is now old technology it has been passed on to smaller provinces. In the cities, TNP makes full use of its newer INL-funded equipment. TNP and Customs officials tell us fiberscopes are still useful. Customs officials are also happy with the ion scanners, claiming that they have helped them increase drug seizures. PEARSON
