Customs gives smuggled rice, canned goods to Ompong victims

 

This bureau has a heart, too.

Customs authorities said they have decided to donate forfeited goods seized from illegal shipments to the Department of Social Welfare and Development as their way of helping victims of typhoon Ompong.

Commissioner Isidro Lapeña said the Bureau of Customs’ Enforcement and Security Service turned over 374 sacks of rice as well as 5,040 canned goods.

This is following the directive of Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III to donate food items and bypass the existing rule where goods under Customs custody need to be sold via a public auction.
