The Bureau of Customs (BOC) on Tuesday described as “fake news” an article circulating online alleging that one of its employees was caught pulling items inside a balikbayan box from a warehouse in Pasay City.
The BOC said that the article from the online site, Pinoyobserver.com, is a satirical blog and that according to its home page, the stories they share are not real.
The alleged BOC employees named in the fictional article, Grace Honrade, and Atty. Rex Pabalete, are not from the roster of BOC personnel, whether contractual or permanent.
The BOC advised the public always to check the authenticity of website, sources, and facts of any news they read.
The current BOC leadership has been reminding everyone in the agency to give the public the service that they deserve. # | BOC_PR
