Bureau of Customs (BOC) District Collector Rogel Gatchalian has irrevocably resigned.
He sent his resignation letter to Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima, Customs Commissioner Rufino Biazon and President Benigno Aquino 3rd.
Gatchalian said that he resigned to prove that he is not clinging to his position as District Collector of the Port of Manila (POM), one of the major ports in the country.
Gatchalian and 27 other district collectors were ordered transfered to the Customs Policy Research Office (CPRO). But the other district collectors questioned the order before the Manila regional trial court.
