President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the “freezing” of several high-ranking officials and staff of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) on accusations of corruption.
In a declaration, presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said the names of the concerned BOC representatives and staff would be revealed for illegitimate operations at the suitable moment as they face administrative and criminal charges.
The recent action of the president underlines the zero tolerance of this administration for corruption among erring officials.
The campaign against corruption continues as it is relentless.
No one is going to be spared.
