New Customs commissioner Angelito ("Joselito") Alvarez was interviewed by Ted Failon in his morning radio show, " Failon at Sanchez" at DZMM.
Alvarez says the reason why he was hired for the position is his experience in the industry. For those who don't know, Alvarez is a close associate of Bert Lina, who has a very serious and deep involvement in the customs and freight business. Lina who once owned the Fedex business is still very much involved in the customs business.
He has been in the business for 20 years working for Bert Lina. Alvarez runs Air Freight 2100, a subsidiary of the Lina Group. And for those who don't know,
THE U.S. FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI) IS CLOSELY MONITORING THE ACTIVITIES OF THE BUREAU OF CUSTOMS ESPECIALLY SINCE ALVAREZ WAS DESIGNATED THE COMMISSIONER BY PHILIPPINE PRESIDENT NOYNOY AQUINO. IT SEEMS THERE IS A DEEPER REASON FOR THIS. see link
Alvarez admits that he knows the "ins and outs" of the customs industry, being a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). He also admitted that he also knows the unscrupulous practices of people inside the Customs department. He knows who are the big-time smugglers, brokers and unscrupulous members of the Customs department.
Alvarez promises to reveal the names of "big fishes" every single week. Mr. Alvarez, I will hold you responsible for this promise.
The question really is for Alvarez, actually THE CHALLENGE for him is this---
What if he learns that one of his closest buddies, even Mr. Bert Lina is involved will he file a case against him?
What if one of his golf buddies is also involved in big-time illegal activity? Will he then file a case against him?
Let's wait and see. I am sharpening my investigative knives and will reveal some of the activities of Alvarez in my next series. Abangan!
I will also reveal some information about Babes Singson of DPWH, BIR Commissioner Kim Henares and Bureau of Customs Commissioner Alvarez.
