Faeldon sworn into new job at OCD
Former Customs chief Nicanor Faeldon took his oath as deputy administrator of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) on Tuesday.
Photos posted on Twitter by his legal team @FaeldonLegal showed the new deputy administrator taking oath before Defense Secretary and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council chairman Delfin Lorenzana. He also posed for a photo with other DND and NDRRMC officials.
In a statement by the Office of Civil Defense, Lorenzana urged Faeldon “to bring new insights that would contribute to OCD’s development as the country’s lead Disaster Risk Reduction and Management agency.”
Faeldon is currently detained at the Senate after he refused to attend the hearings on the smuggling of P6.4 B worth of shabu from China. He earlier quit as Customs chief after being tagged in the scandal.
He was also recently temporarily released from Senate detention to join his wife who just gave birth. /cbb
