Deconsolidators involved in abandoning hundreds of balikbayan boxes at the Manila International Container Port (MICP) have been charged criminally by the Bureau of Customs (BOC).
The BOC has filed nine criminal complaints before the Department of Justice against officials of the FBV Forwarder & Logistics, Inc., CMG International Movers & Cargo Service, Etmar International Logistics Corp., and Cargoflex Haulers Corporation for failure to lodge the goods declaration or to claim the goods within the prescribed period, without valid justification.
Commissioner Ruiz assured the public that the Bureau would go after unscrupulous forwarding companies that continue to defraud Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).
Under the leadership of Comm Ruiz and aligned with the directives of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., the BOC remains firm in performing its mandate towards efficient customs administration. #
