President Rodrigo Duterte has addressed the controversial issue regarding the courier service J&T Express that recently went viral on social media.
KAMI learned that the President even threatened to close down the company after it received many complaints.
In a report by the Philippine Star, President Duterte ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) to conduct an investigation. He also ordered the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to look into the finances of the courier company.
"It's not really one or two incidents na tinapon ninyo. Hindi masyado 'yung sa handling of the cargo. It's the lost cargo or cargo na pinalitan ninyo as a courier, company registered as a courier," the President said.
"Because of so many complaints, I will close you down. Sigurado 'yan. Sasarahan talaga kita, whether you like it or not, after the CIDG and the NIB would finish their investigation and would point a liability sa inyo," he added.
The President also mentioned that he will be looking into the result of the investigation.
"Tapos tignan ko. If I am satisfied na medyo may kalokohan, sisirain ko kayo. And I will file charges, also," Duterte said.
J&T Express is a courier service company that entered the Philippine market in August 2018. It is one of the famous couriers in the country.
The courier company recently drew flak from netizens after a video of its staff mishandling parcels went viral on social media.
Meanwhile, another video went viral after showing different employees also mishandled the packages.
