MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Customs (BOC) has further intensified its anti-corruption campaign under the leadership of Commissioner Rey Leonardo B. Guerrero as 516 show-cause orders were issued from January to September 2021, which led to the dismissal, suspension, relief, and reshuffling of errant BOC employees.

The BOC-Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS) already conducted 126 personnel investigations which resulted in the filing of 31 administrative cases before the BOC-Legal Service.
