Ping: Na-promote at na-demote si Lapeña; Guerrero dapat magpakitang-gilas sa BOC

Promosyon pero demosyon.

Ito ang pagsasalarawan ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa pagkakatalaga kay dating Bureau of Customs (BOC) Commissioner Isidro Lapeña bilang pinuno ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), matapos ang kontrobersiyal na pagkakalusot ng tone-toneladang shabu.

Sinabi ni Lacson na bagama’t promosyon mula sa BOC ang bagong posisyon ni Lapeña bilang pinuno ng TESDA na tinuturing na Cabinet post, ito ay demosyon sa ibang aspeto.

“It may well be a promotion in rank and position, but definitely a demotion in trust and confidence,” ani Lacson.

Lacson: Incoming BOC Chief Has Big Boots to Fill

Newly appointed Bureau of Customs Commissioner Leonardo Rey Guerrero will have big boots to fill as he replaces the newly “promoted” Isidro Lapeña, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Friday.

But Lacson also noted that while Lapeña was promoted in rank and position, his transfer to a new post may well be a demotion in trust and confidence.

“It may well be a promotion in rank and position, but definitely a demotion in trust and confidence. It’s a pity because save for the big shabu shipment that got away, apparently due to collusion between the drug syndicate and some low-level Customs officials, former Commissioner Lapeña was doing a good job proven by consistently exceeding the Bureau’s target collections,” Lacson said.

“Having said that, the President has once again shown zero tolerance as far as his war on drugs is concerned,” he added.
