Malacañang is confident that newly appointed customs chief John Sevilla can carry out reforms in his bureau and asked for the public’s patience to give him time to do his job.
Sevilla said he’s receiving reports about rampant anomaly in the bureau but those reports have to be validated.
In a radio interview on Saturday, Palace deputy spokesman Abigail Valte said they are confident about Sevilla’s capability in fixing the bureau.
“Kaya ni Commissioner Sevilla iyan. I think he was talking about the reports that he was getting,” she told dzRB Radyo ng Bayan.
Valte said Sevilla also laid out his plans for the bureau and pointed out reports he’s been getting should be thoroughly validated.
When asked if the Palace believes Customs Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence Jessie Dellosa is effective in his job, Valte said people should give him and Sevilla enough time to show their competence.
“Both of them are new to their posts,” she said. “I think let’s give them time. Maraming kailangang gawing trabaho diyan. Bigyan natin sila ng pagkakataon na mabuo ang kanilang team at magawa ng kanilang grupo ang ibinigay sa kanilang mandato ng Pangulong Aquino.” PNA
