MANILA, Philippines – The Senate blue ribbon committee continues on Tuesday, October 30, its probe into the P11-billion worth of shabu (methamphetamine), which slipped past the Bureau of Customs (BOC) in July.
The controversy has pushed President Rodrigo Duterte to order a military takeover of the BOC after its personnel were accused of being deep in corruption over the years.
This is so far the biggest smuggling controversy to hit the administration of President Duterte, with the probe conducted just months before the campaign starts for the 2019 midterm elections.
Watch the hearing live on Rappler at 10 am, Tuesday. – Rappler.com
