Manila, Philippines Customs Office Receives, “The Most Corrupt Officials Award”
The first ever The Most Corrupt Officials Award (MCOA), stems to spotlight the best corrupted officials in the world. Its aim is to recognize the hard working officials who to the best of their ability, have gone above and beyond their normal duties to ensure maximum corruption.
The first winner this year is the Manila Customs office. On February 16, 2008, books worth P9786.00 was charged customs tax of over P7000.00+, a tax rate of 71%. The DHL shipping numbers were: 8417858514, 8417858525.
We would like to thank the Manila Customs office for showing the world how NOT to run a customs/clearance office. Their clear dedication in making sure that the country continues to suffer from bad rankings high above other countries is a testament to Manila Customs' integrity, character, and family values.
