MANILA, Philippines — It is impossible for high-ranking officials of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) not to know the “pastillas” modus considering that corrupt officials and

Duterte may skip Edsa anniversary, again (What I feel about this, it’s impossible for them to believe that they are clueless in the pastillas operation, as well as other similar operations, because we have heard this several times which involves a huge amount of money.) “Dito lang sa pastillas operation, tantyang P10 billion and counting,” Hontiveros added. “So paanong naka-eskapo that time sa atensyon nilang lahat?” (In this operation, it’s an estimate of P10 billion and counting. So how did this escape their attention?) Asked if the scheme was an indication of how BI Commissioner Jaime Morente was running the bureau, Hontiveros answered: “Nakakahiya nga yung position in which he was placed sa kasalukuyan. (It’s shameful to be in a position where he is placed now.)” “Para gamutin yan, kaya binibigyang halaga ko rin yung pag-amyenda at pag-update sa 1940 Bureau of Immigration Law,” Hontiveros said, vouching to amend the Philippine Immigration Act of 1940. (To cure that, I’m giving emphasis on amending and updating the 1940 Bureau of Immigration Law.) Morente previously said that he had limited powers under the law to remove corrupt officials in the BI, as he had no authority to suspend or sack permanent employees.
