PASG nets P12-billion additional taxes

Subic Bay Freeport: Presidential Anti-Smuggling Group (PASG) head Antonio Villar Jr. orders its campaign against smugglers intensified on Monday after netting more than P12 billion in additional taxes, duties and illegal goods. Likewise, he warned his men that engaging in illegal activities would translate to criminal and administrative charges.

“Spare no one,” Villar told retired PASG Director for Operations Chief. Supt. Danilo Mangila, PASG-National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Special Operations Group and PASG-Task Force Subic Director Atty. Edmund Arugay and Intelligence Director Guillermo “Jaih” Francia in a meeting.

He added that smugglers are using all their connections in government to smuggle in goods in the country.

“I did it to my deputy director in Zamboanga last week, There is no reason for me to spare you should you deviate from the normal course of our mandate,” Villar said, referring to deputy director Joseph Gonzales whom he ordered arrested and charged for effecting the release of a seized container van loaded with plastic toys.

Arugay has already tapped the help of the NBI to further augment his men in Subic while Francia has asked the help of the Customs intelligence for reinforcement.

Villar also warned his men that criminal and administrative charges would be waiting for them in case they are found in cahoots with smugglers and other illegal activities.-- Anthony Bayarong - Manila Times
