Repatriating Bell teachers from Libya

24 February 2011

Bell takes the safety and security of its staff throughout the world extremely seriously.

At the first signs of the recent demonstrations and unrest in Libya, Bell began repatriating its 11 staff members from Libya.

Nine members of staff based in Tripoli have safely departed Libya on various flights this week. The remaining two members of Bell staff in Libya, based in Benghazi, are due to leave Libya today on HMS Cumberland which is sailing to Malta. Staff at Bell's Head Office are in the process of arranging accommodation in Malta and flights back to the UK for these two staff members.

Bell is constantly monitoring the situation and is in contact with personnel and their families. Bell has set up a 24 hour emergency helpline to assist staff and their families during the repatriation process.
