Current Bureau of Customs head Rey Leonardo told media men that some 20 officials of the BoC have submitted their courtesy resignations.

BoC spokesperson Atty. Erastus Sandino Austria said the courtesy resignations are but a standard procedure in any government agency once a new head has been appointed by the President.

Atty. Austria added that the BoC officials submitted their resignation since Guerrero assumed office late last month.

“Yeah around that time, various dates. This is a sign of support and solidarity with the new administration, Comm. Guerrero, to give him a free hand in selecting the people who will work closely with him in carrying out the directives of the president,” the BoC explained.

Officers-in-charge have been assigned to the positions vacated by the resignees.

“Yes, it is like that, but no functions have been formally delegated by the Commissioner, pending the issuance of their appointment papers. They are here to assist the Commissioner directly,” he added.

“Regarding the appointees who tendered their courtesy resignation, per Commissioner Guerrero out of courtesy to these individuals as well, no names yet,” Austria.
“But more or less 20 ang total ng current Presidential Appointees in BOC subject to the evaluation of the appointing authority,” Austria added.
The BoC will not identify the names of the 20 appointees that resigned out of courtesy to those individuals.
