Customs Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon ought to chorus from making “shotgun” accusation and identify names.
Senators Chiz Escudero and Sonny Angara on Thursday dared Faeldon to identify the alleged politicians who attempt to meddle into the affairs of the Bureau of Customs (BoC).
Faeldon lately lambasted some politicians, whom he didn’t identify, for allegedly demanding to appoint sure people to particular posts on the BoC.
“He should name names and not issue a shotgun accusation. If indeed it is corruption, then he should name them and file cases against them if he is indeed serious in cleaning up his bureau,” Escudero mentioned.
Angara mentioned Faeldon ought to expose these asking for unlawful favors. “Appointing someone is not necessarily illegal unless the person recommended will commit illegal acts.”
Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto has described as mere “distraction” Faeldon’s allegation. “The issue is that huge amount of drugs come out of the BoC. Is corruption still rampant or is it incompetence? The lawmakers are not the ones running the bureau.”
President Rodrigo Duterte mentioned he’ll await first the results of Congress’ investigation into the smuggling in May of P6.Four-billion value of shabu earlier than he acts on the destiny of Faeldon for his alleged failure to cease its entry on the Port of Manila.
