PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has appointed to the Department of Transportation (DOTr) the two Customs officials who quit their posts after they were linked to a controversy involving the P6.4-billion shabu shipment from China.

Duterte appointed former Deputy Customs Commissioner Gerardo Gambala as DOTr’s Office of the Transportation Security Director, while former Custom’s Import Assessment Services Director Milo Maestrecampo was named as assistant director general of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).

The appointment papers of Gambala and Maestrecampo were signed by Duterte on November 6, but were released only yesterday.

Maestrecampo resigned on August 8 while Gambala tendered his resignation on October 10.
