Lacson on Monday revealed that he had been receiving information about the alleged corruption under the present administration involving tens of millions of loss revenues, specifically in the Bureau of Customs (BOC).
“Kasi may pumapasok na information about corruption under the present administration so tinitingnan nating mabuti (We will be looking into information about corruption under the present administration),” he told reporters on Monday.
“May mga information pero hazy, very sketchy ang mga reports, subject to verification (There are information but they are hazy, very sketchy [and will be] subject to verification),” the senator added.
Lacson refused to provide more details except that the alleged corruption was committed in the “middle and lower level” of the agency.
“Wala pang evidence o information na nag-i-indicate na sa higher level. Meron pero dapat tingnan din. Hindi natin alam hanggang saang level umaabot ang corruption. (There is no evidence or information indicating [that there is corruption] in the higher level [of the government]. We do not know what level corruption has reached.) Right now we’re looking at corruption in the Bureau of Customs,” he said
