A fight that erupted at a meeting in the Public Security Ministry Monday sent one woman to the hospital for injuries suffered by the attacker, who has been ordered to take a two-week “cooling off” vacation.
The head of the firearms department barged into a workers’ committee meeting and protested his not being invited. When the woman who was chairing the meeting asked him to leave, the man allegedly attacker her, and a fight broke out.
The man then filed a complaint with police, apparently against those who hit him, and his superiors told him to leave work for two weeks and then appear at a meeting with the director of the ministry.
By that time, the woman may be out of the hospital, the alleged attacker may have cooled down, and the ministry can get back to taking care of public security instead of its own security.
