THE so-called militarization of the Bureau of Customs (BoC) to weed out alleged corrupt civil service officials did not get the desired performance results, according to Marikina City Rep. Miro Quimbo. He said that this was evident in the overall collection performance of the BOC which has gone from bad to worse. “Unfortunately the performance has only become worse. Look at the biggest port, the Manila International Container Port, when it was ran by an alleged corrupt civilian official the shortfall was P6.9 billion, but when he was replaced (by a retired general), the shortfall rose to P18 billion from the P6.9 billion during the first full year,” said Quimbo in a radio interview over the weekend. According to Quimbo, Deputy Commissioner Jessie Dellosa has brought in at least 13 retired military officials, all of whom are now occupying sensitive positions. At present, seven of the biggest customs collection dis-tricts are run by former generals. “I have not heard anything questioning their integrity nor received reports about dishonesty,” Quimbo clarified.
