On the special stop order:
“Nag-tara sa green lane… tatarahan uli sa pamamagitan ng pag-issue ng special stop order.”
“Pagkatapos maka-green lane ka kasi nag-tara ka, regular tara, i-issue-han ka pa ng special stop order, bukod pa yung alert order, may gastos pa rin yan. Ang pinakita kanina gaano kalawak ang pag in-issue-han ka pa ng special stop order, panibagong negotiation. And yan P250-300K more gagastusin mo pag na-special stop order ka. At nag-issue lang ng special stop order ang commissioner ng BOC as testified to by the resource persons. So sino rin mag-lift? E di commissioner ng BOC.”
“Labas ito sa tara na regular. Pag special stop ka luluha ka ng dugo.”

On corruption at the BOC:
“Bank statements won’t lie. Call logs won’t lie. Text messages won’t lie. Ano bang pruweba gusto makita ni Mr Faeldon… at abot sa opisina niya ang corruption.”
“There’s a saying, ‘Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.’ Sa atin … ‘ang pinakamapanganib ay ang tanga na pinagdudunugan at corrupt na naglilinis-linisan.’”

On the need for sustained reform at BOC:
“I think it’s time consider natin baguhin ang takbo sa BOC para di malagay sa year in year out pag nag-survey ang SWS kayo most corrupt agency. Di ba nakakahiya yan?”
