WATCH:BoC APPEAL: KNOW THE CUSTOMS LAW AND RESPECT THE AUTHORITIES

Since the news broke out regarding the warning issued by the NAIA Arrival Area Assistant Chief, overseas Filipinos expressed their outraged in the social media

In a follow-up report by TV Patrol (video below) though the Customs Assistant Chief avoided media interview, the Acting Customs Examiner Carol Buenconsejo explained her role in the apprehension of Arrieta who she explained is not an OFW but a frequent traveler, thus, the need to pay taxes.  She also mentioned how she is  being bullied because of what happened. 

There is a misunderstanding in that report because OFWs are not worried or do not care at all about Arrieta or if the Customs asked him to pay taxes over the number of quantities that he brought with him because he is not an OFW in the first place. What is the problem with the previous report was the way the Assistant Chief of BOC delivered the information as well as the warning she expressed regarding imposition of tax. Read it in the graphics below.

There is a communication problem between the BOC, and the OFWs. If it is possible that BOC can release an official statement with the list of taxable items or what is allowed for an OFW to bring with him or items he can send to the Philippines so OFWs will not be agitated or will not worry about the possible custom duty and tax that they will pay for their luggage. 
General statement like this, will not help either.
