Customs Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon reported that around P1.3-billion-worth of contraband were confiscated by the BOC during the first 50 days in office.

Faeldon said among of these contrabands found are drugs, red onions, sugar, and cosmetics that were fake.

"P1.3-billion of different contraband have been seized by the Bureau of Customs, ranging from drugs, red onions, sugar, and kasama yung mga pampaganda, cosmetics, mga fake or without FDA permits coming from the different parts of the world," Faeldon said.



He also said that they were also able to intercept 10 high-powered firearms which were kept inside balikbayan boxes.

Faeldon revealed that 
Customs Police Captain Arnel Baylosis was the corrupt official in the agency who allegedly received millions of pesos to allow entry of certain products into the country. A case is already being pursued against him. 

"Four individuals who have direct transactions with him testified through affidavit that previously, since 2012 they have been giving bribe money, it’s called 'tara' amounting to P100- to P120-million monthly," Faeldon said.

"I've already forwarded the case folder of this employee to the Department of Justice for investigation," he added.

He maintained, they "are continuously isolating and tracking the bureau officials that are believed to be very corrupt.
