The Bureau of Customs implemented the installation of CCTV cameras due to the reports of rampant bribery and corruption happening inside the bureau and for transparency in all customs transactions.It was started during the time of the former BOC Commissioner Lina,but the employees union of the bureau opposed it stating that it is a violation of their human rights.Last years survey from SWS show that the BOC is the leading government office in terms of corruption.
The net rating of -55 is considered "very bad".Lina's order to install additional CCTVs is according to him,a way to fight corruption inside the bureau.Both Lina and the employees union agree that one way to stop these practices is to increase the salary of the employees.
