Atty. Rivera Lambasts Customs Employee Protesting the Installations of CCTV Cameras


Prominent lawyer Atty. Bruce Rivera took to Facebook and share his thoughts on the latest issue involving a customs employee who protested for the installations of additional cameras in the agency which is considered as the most corrupt government office for the past few years. Atty. Rivera lambasts Customs Employees Association-POM Chapter for having the audacity to question the installation of CCTV's in the Customs Office.


The San Beda lawyer made a very intimidating remark against Rommel Francisco who urged the government to raise their salaries instead of installing cameras in the BOC. Atty. Rivera's response was made through his official Facebook page after news broke out on primetime TV.

In a news report posted on national TV during State of the Nation's episode, Commissioner Bert Lina issued the directive to install additional CCTV cameras specifically in transaction areas and other payment windows to deter corruption and red tape inside the agency.

Watch the Video Report from GMA News:



GMA News reporter Jun Veneracion interviewed Rommel Francisco, President of the Bureau of Customs Employees Association-POM Chapter who question the CCTV installations in the court and to stage a protest because of the Customs employees right to privacy. During the interview, he was quoted as saying "Bakit naman kami tututukan niyan, di po ba violation sa karapatang pantao yan?"

The BOC officer also added further that "Subukan kaya nila itaas ang sahod namin. Ibigay sa aming ang tamang benepisyo. Sa tingin ba nila gagawa pa kami ng ganun?"

Here's the Response of Atty. Rivera to Rommel Franciso's Statement:
Akala ko ba nakapasok ka sa BOC dahil alam mo na ang public office is a public trust and that you should be living modest lives. So, alam niyo ang pinasukan niyo nung pumasok kayo sa gobyerno. Ano ang problema ng CCTV? Kami nga sa San Beda may ganun, hindi naman ikinababa ng pagkatao namin.

Tsaka, alam mo na sa gobyerno, maliit ang sahod. Ang mga taga-DSWD nga na pareho ang salary grade, naglalakad pauwi habang may kotse ang BOC employee. Hindi dahilan ang kababaan ng sweldo para rumaket. Hwag ninyo iblame ang gobyerno sa liit ng sweldo. Gusto mo malaking sweldo, mag-abroad ka o di kaya magtrabaho ka sa isang multinational company na mataas ang sahod. Dun ako naiinis eh, justify mo pa pagiging gahaman mo.

Aminin mo na gusto mo lang ng pera kesa emotr ka na mababa ang sweldo. Mahiya kayo sa taong-bayan....kahit konti.

Bruce Villafuerte Rivera, palagay mo boboto sila kay Duterte?
