JV LAUDS BOC FOR SEIZING 15-M RED ONIONS
Senator JV Ejercito lauded Bureau of Customs for actively pursuing smugglers, with its seizure of 15-Million worth of red onions from India last Wednesday.
"I am glad that BOC is actively chasing agricultural smugglers. This is a huge help for Filipino farmers and the agricultural industry," Ejercito today said.
Ejercito is principal author of the Anti-Agricultural Smuggling Law (Republic Act No. 10845), which imposes harsher penalties such as imprisonment and 1-million fine for perpetrators caught in the act of smuggling.
Yesterday, Ejercito was in Nueva Ecija to share the Anti-Agricultural Smuggling law to farmers, and the Free Irrigation Bill he is currently pushing in the Senate.
