Former PDEA Chief turned Customs Commissioner Isidro Lapeña confirmed during a speech in Davao City that a total of 641 Bureau of Customs (BoC) officials and employees starting October 2017 due to corruption and other corrupt practices inside the once most corrupt agency in the country.


According to Commissioner Lapeña, the BoC is among the worst and most corrupt agencies in government during the past few years, an image that Lapeña wants to change under his leadership and under the watchful eyes of Pres. Rody Duterte.

The 641 sacked officials and employees of BoC is reflective of how massive corruption eats up the agency personnel during the previous years.

Commmissioner Lapeña emphasized during his speech that firing corrupt officials and employees is a process, "We must follow an internal procedure, we have to follow procedures because some of them are covered by the Civil Service law, but those who have been identified and caught red handed - must bid goodbye," Lapeña emphasized.

The former PDEA chief, Gen. Isidro Lapeña, whose image in Davao Region is never tainted with corruption until his retirement as a police general revealed that he is not yet convinced that his agency is clean as of now as  he said can still sniff corrupt practices among his people.

Commissioner Lapeña, one of the most trusted general of Pres. Duterte also noted that terminating erring Customs officials and personnel is not enough, he said, "I will be filing administrative complaint or dismissla from service," he stressed.
