He’s speaking from experience.

Congressman Ruffy Biazon of Muntinlupa has weighed in on the issue surrounding the Bureau of Customs and its Commissioner, Isidro Lapeña.

Calls have been mounting for Lapeña’s removal from office as the probe on the illegal drugs hidden inside magnetic lifters made its way to the Philippines via the Cavite port. The Customs chief, however, said he won’t be going anywhere.

“Customs has a triple mandate— revenue collection, border security, trade facilitation. Ideally, there should be a balanced performance in all three,” said Biazon, who is also an ex-Customs Commissioner during the Aquino administration.
