He added that the bureau’s Personal Identification Blacklist Immigration Control System which enables immigration centers to access other databases both at home and overseas such as the Interpol, the Customs Department, security agencies, and commercial airlines is a closed system that doesn’t grant any sorts of remote access to anyone.

As for the bureau’s website, he said it contains only general information which is not confidential or related to national security.
