President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) of the Philippine National Police (PNP), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), and Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to investigate J&T Express.
“May isa dito na madalas akong makatanggap ng complaint. You better shape up but I’d like you to know that I am ordering now because the CIDG is listening and the NBI to investigate you at ang BIR to look into your finances,” President Duterte said on July 30.
“Iyong mga padala nawawala tapos pagdating, pinapalitan. Wala ng laman. I am not condemning you now. I am not also insinuating that you are liable or guilty of doing it. It would depend greatly on what is the result of the investigation,” he added.
“Itong J&T — ‘yung nakita niyo sa TV — ‘yung tinatapon nila ‘yung waste na ano na mga basag-basag diyan, mga spoiled or ‘yung kinunan o pinalitan baka, masyadong marami,” Duterte said. “Kaya ang mga Pilipino tuloy ‘pag magpadala gagamitin ang J&T, trusting that itong mga bagay na ito dadating… Ang gumagamit pa naman ng mga ganoon ‘yung mahihirap, ‘yung may ipadala.”
“It’s not really one or two incidents na tinapon ninyo. Ang hindi masyado ‘yung sa the handling of the cargo, it’s the lost cargo or cargo na pinalitan ninyo. As a courier, a company registered as a courier, I would like to — because of the so many complaints but I will close you down. Sigurado ‘yan sasarahan talaga kita whether you like it or not after the CIDG and the NBI would finish their investigation and would point a liability sa inyo,” he said.
