CCBI, through a statement signed by Atty. Ferdinand Nague, the organization’s president, Wednesday, bared that “Mr. Taguba is not a Customs broker and not a member of the customs brokerage profession.”

The revelation was made after Taguba, who claimed to be a Customs broker, linked several ranking Customs officials to corruption and other irregularities during a House inquiry lasy Monday.

According to CCBI secretary Antonio Bilazon, after investigation and verification with the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), they found out that Taguba is not a customs broker.

Bilazon said CCBI board met with Nague late Tuesday to discuss the matter and decided to reveal it to the public the next day.
