CCBI: BOC Whistleblower Mark Taguba Not A Customs Broker


Controversial whistleblower Mark Taguba, a self-confessed Customs broker who was one of the key witness in the Bureau of Customs mess which led to the confiscation of billions of pesos of shabu shipment, is now identified as a fake broker.


According to the official statement of Atty. Ferdinand Nague, President of Chamber of Customs Brokers, Inc. (CCBI), bared that "Mr. Taguba is not a Customs Broker and not a member of the customs brokerage profession."

The revelations of CCBI was made after the controversial whistleblower Mark Taguba, who claimed to be a Customs broker, linked several high ranking Customs officials who were appointees of Pres. Duterte and Customs Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon to corruption and other irregularities during a House inquiry last Monday.


Aside from the CCBI President's statement, the secretary of the group, Antonio Bilazon also revealed that they conducted an investigation and verification with the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), they found out that Taguba is not a customs broker.

Antonio Bilzaon said that CCBI Board met with Atty. Nague late Tuesday to discuss the matter and decided to reveal it to the public the next day.

The alleged customs broker Mark Taguba accused five major officials of the BOC of taking bribes to facilitate his shipments. Taguba said the officials were Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence Group Teddy Group Teddy Raval, Manila International Container Port (MICP) District Collector Vincent Philip Maronilla, Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS) Director Neil Estrella, MICP-CIIS District Intelligence Officer Teodoro Sagaral and Import Assessment Service (IAS) Director Milo Maestrecampo.
