MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Customs (BOC) has further intensified its anti-corruption campaign under the leadership of Commissioner Rey Leonardo B. Guerrero as 516 show-cause orders were issued from January to September 2021, which led to the dismissal, suspension, relief, and reshuffling of errant BOC employees.
The BOC-Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS) already conducted 126 personnel investigations which resulted in the filing of 31 administrative cases before the BOC-Legal Service.
In addition, the BOC was also able to transmit 57 cases to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and one case to the Ombudsman.
During the period, three BOC employees were dismissed, 12 were suspended, six were reprimanded, and another six were relieved, and 543 were reshuffled or transferred to various offices and ports due to irregular and unlawful activities.
Other accomplishments achieved under the same campaign include the Performance Governance System (PGS) trailblazer award for the BOC, the ISO certification of six BOC offices and ports; the culmination of the Bureau's Integrity Programme Diagnostic with the World Customs Organization (WCO); and the creation of the Anti-Corruption Coordinating Committee and BOC-Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (BOC-PACC) Command Group.
The Bureau of Customs remains steadfast in its fight against corruption and in increasing the level of integrity within the organization.
