SUGAR LEADERS ASK
Don’t just reshuffle,
sack corrupt at BOC
BY CARLA GOMEZ
President Benigno Aquino should see to the removal, not just reshuffling, of corrupt Bureau of Customs personnel, sugar leaders said yesterday.
Aquino took BOC personnel to task in his State of the Nation Address recently for failing to put a stop to smuggling.
“Instead of collecting proper taxes and preventing contraband from entering the country, they are heedlessly permitting the smuggling of goods and even drugs, arms and other items of similar nature into our territory,” the President said.
