Two more officials of the Bureau of Customs have been ordered dismissed from service by the Office of Ombudsman while two officers of the Bureau of Internal Revenue were suspended on allegations of grave misconduct.
According to the Department of Finance’s Revenue Integrity Service (RIPS), Mitchell Verdeflor, the BOC’s Intelligence Officer I, was found guilty by the Ombudsman of dishonesty.
He failed to disclose several pieces of property and his wife’s business interest in his sworn Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net worth (SALN).
The Ombudsman also found probable cause to indict lawyer Titus Sangil, Customs Operations Officer at the Manila International Container Port (MICP).
Sangil failed to declare in his SALNs his wife’s business interests in MAGS Enterprises, Filestation Computer Rentals, Guiriba Corp. and other assorted ventures, such as the buy and sell of service/motor vehicles, investment lending, and brokering business transactions for commission.
Meanwhile, Marlon Pascual and Emma Pascual, Revenue Officers I and II, respectively, of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), were suspended for six months without pay by the Ombudsman as a result of administrative charges filed against them, including grave misconduct, conduct unbecoming of a public officer, and abuse of authority.
