Fikret Akcura orders by email all UN staff in Pakistan to stay home, while failes to elevate security level

In an internal communication email to all UN staff in Pakistan - Fikret Akcura THE UNRC has ordered all offices to shut down and asked the staff to telecommute from their homes until further notice.

Fikret Akcura refers to fresh security concerns in Pakistan, but the message failed to indicate to staffers the appropriate level of security in country. 

All staff including those in Rawalpindi and Islamabad are told not to visit any public offices. 

While this measures are welcomed from all staffers as a precaution, its not understandable on why Fikret Akcura failed to elevate the Country Security Level to 4 and evacuate non-necessary personnel and family relatives from Pakistan. 

We hope that Akcura's being "politically correct" with current Pakistani government will not cost anymore UN lives.
