New Memorandum Cancels the Random Inspection of BBB, Lina Also Apologized To OFWs

Once again, the unity showed by OFWs against the opening of balik-bayan boxes by the Bureau of Customs, gave them the victory. Today a memorandum order has been released which bans  the random checking of balik-bayan boxes. The new memorandum order shall repeal any existing order, or circular that is in conflict with it. 

Instead of random inspection,  boxes shall undergo mandatory x-ray scanning. Boxes that had been screened using x-ray and found anomalous shall be investigated and inspected 100% in the presence of designated officers and representatives from the freight forwarder, OWWA or OFW association representative.
