His transfer would last “until revoked,” according to the Customs Personnel Order signed by Faeldon.
Baylosis denied the allegations against him, and vowed to clear his name at the proper forum. “I was never investigated nor issued any order or memorandum to explain the said crime imputed against me,” Baylosis, who has been working at the Bureau of Customs (BOC) for over 35 years, said in a statement.
