THE BUREAU OF CUSTOMS ARE STILL OPENING THE BALIKBAYAN BOXES!!!?


The Bureau of Customs has suspected contraband (cigarettes) in balikbayan boxes, and as per the BoC's Memorandum, they need an OWWA/OFW sector representative present during inspection of the boxes. One of the member of the OFW coalition, Engr. N. Ramirez of the UFS or the United Filipino Seafarer accomodated the BoC's request during the opening of these suspected boxes.








Please take note that these boxes, from 3 containers and more than 200 boxes are from the Middle East. They wanted to open all, but Engr. Nelson explained that cigarettes in the Middle East are expensive so why should an OFW send imported cigarettes if he/she can buy it at a cheaper price here in the Philippines. What they found out from that random opening of 5-10 balikbayan boxes was shocking! 

 blankets, pillows, tide with downey, toilet soap, frying pans, shoes, stuff toys, honey in bottles, coffee, tissue paper etc.. 

NO CIGARETTES!
