Custom Security guard under fire of controversy.
CUSTOM SECURITY GUARD – Husband of a radio personality who happens to be a security of Customs suspended over unexplained bank deposits with large amounts.
In several bank accounts, a security of Customs at the Port of Manila faces preventive suspension for three months after it has been found out that in different accounts, large amounts of money was deposited. Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS) investigation turned out that Renly Tiñana, the security guard, keeps roughly Php 2-million in various back accounts.
According to a report from GMA, Tiñana is Bureau of Customs (BOC) security guard 2 since 2002 where he is assigned as a spot checker at the port with a monthly salary playing around Php 14,000.00.
“Given ‘yung salary grade niya, if at all, it warrants na kami ay tingnan namin kung ito ba ay naakma sa kakayahan niya o sa kakayahan ng pamilya niya na magkaroon ng ganito kalaking deposits,” says Customs Assistant Commissioner Jet Maronilla.
Reportedly, there were four bank accounts allegedly owned by Tiñana with an accumulated amount of Php 1.9-million. Maronilla furthered, “Ang naging red flag lang din kasi sa investigation ng CIIS, sa pagkakaalam namin sa report na ginawa nila, eh yung period kasi ng April at saka May, medyo substantial yung transactions ng pag deposito.”
BOC has already called the attention of Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) and the Department of Finance (DOF) to respectively check his bank accounts and a lifestyle check. They have also tapped the National Bureau of Investigation to help in the investigation.
Moreover, the bank accounts has been learned following the arrest last May 20 of a fake employee of Customs who deposits the money to security guard’s bank account. Customs Commissioner Rey Leonardo Guerrero directed Tiñana to be charged with “grave misconduct and conduct prejudicial to the best interest of public service.”
