A Manila court on Tuesday ordered the Bureau of Customs to proceed with the signing of the P650 million contract on the Integrated Customs Processing System or the computerization of the bureau.
Regional Trial Court Branch 47 Judge Paulino Gallego issued the Omnibus Order on Monday, said Harry Roque, legal counsel of mobile IT solutions provider Omni Prime Marketing Inc., the winning bidder.
“The order simply means that Customs Commissioner Alberto Lina should sign the contract,” he told The Manila Times.
Lina nullified all contracts approved by the bureau when he took office in April.
However, the project, dubbed as PNSW2 or Integrated Enhanced Customs Processing System, was awarded to E-Konek Pilipinas, a company owned by Lina that has for its president former Customs commissioner Guillermo Parayno.
