Cebuano news: Pagtul-id sa ahensya sa Customs moresulbar sa mga anomaliya, matud sa Palasyo

Ni Susil D. Ragas

MANILA, Hulyo 26 (PIA) -- Maresulba na ang tanang mga anomaliya sulod sa buhatan sa Bureau of Customs sa panahon nga mapatuman na ang giplanong reporma sa administrasyong Aquino, sumala sa Malakanyang kagahapon.

Matud ni Customs Deputy Commissioner Danilo Lim nga pipila ka mga impormasyon mahitungod sa smuggling o pagpayuhot ang dili klaro ug nagpabilin nga lalisunon tungod kay ila kining nadawat pinaagi sa inpormal nga proseso.

Apan sumala pa ni Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda bisan unsa pa ang isulti sa mga opisyales sa Customs, mahitabo gayud ang kalit nga mga kabag-ohan sa maong buhatan sa oras nga mapatuman na sa gobyernong Aquino ang pag-implementar sa mga reporma nga giingon ni Presidente sa iyang State-of-the-Nation Address (SONA) niadtong Lunes.

Kung mahinumduman sa iyang SONA, ang Presidente miingon nga ang Buhatan sa Bureau of Customs nagpadayon nga nakigkumpetensya sa lain pang gikatahong korap nga mga ahensya ug kinahanglan na kining masumpo.

Matud niya nga luyo sa mga paningkamot nga limpyuhon ang maong buhatan, apan ang pagpayuhot og mga butang, droga ug mga armas nagpabilin gihapon.

Sa gibana-bana sa Department of Finance moabot sa kantidad P200 bilyones ang nawala sa gobyerno resulta sa padayon nga pagpayuhot.

Matud pa niya nga dili pwede nga magpabilin ang maong kalihukan sa gobyerno ug kinahanglan nga mapahawa ang dili angayan nga maglingkod ug magpabilin sa iyang puwesto sa maong ahensya. (FEA/SDR/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
