Viral Video: Foreigner Voices Out Against Philippines Bureau of Customs

The Philippine Bureau of Customs has been receiving flak from Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) and their relatives when they have announced that they will be manually opening Balik-Bayan Boxes (packages usually containing gifts to family members).

Aside from the news that a lot of the Customs officials have been taxing Filipinos for the expensive contents in the Balik-Bayan Boxes (some even amounting to over $340), senator Miriam Santiago has asked the BOC to explain their motives for going through the packages. The BOC have released their statements on the subject, stating that they are purely doing the random inspection because of anti-smuggling efforts.

The Filipinos and foreigners, apparently, are not buying their reasons, as shown in the video. The video has been uploaded last August 24 and it has gotten over 1.5 million views and over 100,000 shares in less than 24 hours.
