Duterte officially appoints Faeldon as BuCor chief
President Rodrigo Duterte has officially appointed Nicanor Faeldon as Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) chief.
Duterte signed Faeldon’s appointment paper on Monday, a copy of which was released by Malacañang on Wednesday.
Duterte earlier named Faeldon as BuCor chief, replacing retired Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, who is gunning for a Senate seat in the 2019 midterm elections.
Prior to being appointed as BuCor chief, Faeldon was designated Office of the Civil Defense deputy administrator.
Faeldon resigned as Customs Commissioner amid controversy on the P6.4 billion shabu shipment which slipped past the bureau. /muf
