Orders reshuffling of personnel in tax agency
Bringing his battle against corruption in government to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the reshuffling of tax officials and the “freezing” of government personnelin the tx agency believed to be involved in irregularities.
Duterte said he has asked BIR Commissioner Caesar Dulay to submit a list of officials to be affected by the reassignment.
You implement a reshuffle and give me a list and I will review if,” Duterte said in a televised public address last Monday.
If they already have a reputation for corruption, do not give them assignments, ask them to report to your office,Duterte said.
Duterte earlier issued a similar directive to public works Secretary Mark Villar, whose agency is the focus of a probe being conducted by a justice department-led task force.
