BUREAU OF CUSTOMS EXAMINER AT NAIA, OPENED THE DIPLOMATIC POUCH AND BAGGAGE OF JAPAN'S EMPEROR AND EMPRESS!?




Manila Bulletin reports about a serious diplomatic “faux pas” that was apparently committed by a Bureau of Customs (BOC) examiner at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) after he subjected to an unauthorized examination the diplomatic pouches consigned to the Japanese Embassy in Manila containing among others, the “sake” (Japanese wine) to be used for the welcome reception in honor of Their Majesties Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko who are scheduled to arrive in the country for a five-day state visit tomorrow.

The blunder, supposedly committed last month by NAIA Customs Examiner Pompeo Manalo who is assigned at the Pair Cargo Customs Bonded Warehouse in Pasay City, has prompted the office of Customs Commissioner Alberto Lina to order the NAIA-BOC District Office to undertake a probe on the said incident.

A diplomatic pouch is any property identified and sealed package, pouch, bag, or other container that is used to transport official correspondence, documents, and other articles intended for official use of embassies, consulates, and the offices of public international organizations, among others.

In accordance with Article 27.3 of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (VCDR), properly designated diplomatic pouches “shall not be opened or detained.”




Under the same Convention, any search or inspection of a properly labeled diplomatic pouch constitutes a “serious breach.” In fact, international law does not even set any limits on the permissible size, weight and quantity of diplomatic pouches, it was learned.


Aside from the bottles of sake, which will be used at a reception to be hosted by the Japanese Ambassador to Manila in honor of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko on the evening of January 28, the said diplomatic pouches also reportedly contained several official items of the Japanese Embassy and a photo album collection of President Benigno Aquino III and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

It was not known if the Japanese Embassy has lodged a formal protest regarding the incident but a well-placed BOC source said the Embassy was “very disappointed” about the unwarranted examination of their cargo.

This sentiment was reportedly expressed in a text message sent to the office of Commissioner Lina.
“This is the first time that it happened to them so the Embassy was very disappointed,” a source at the Customs told the Manila Bulletin.

Sources said a staff at the Japanese Embassy who was present during the incident reportedly tried to dissuade Manalo from opening the pouches as they were already covered by a certificate from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and other relevant documentation necessitated for the release.

According to DFA Spokesperson Assistant Secretary Charles Jose, aside from the DFA certificate, the other requirement needed for a cargo to be designated as a diplomatic pouch is a Customs clearance.

When asked by his superiors at the BOC-NAIA about the incident, Manalo reportedly claimed that he was merely acting on orders of his immediate boss Emily Balatbat, chief of the BOC Composite Unit at the Pair Cargo.

However, a Customs functionary who is privy to the incident dismissed Manalo’s claim that he merely acted on orders of his superiors. “Customs examiners and appraisers are aware of the standard procedure in handling diplomatic pouches,” the source explained.

The same source insisted that aside from its diplomatic nature, no examination is warranted for that particular cargo since “there was no prior alert, no extraordinary event or reason to justify the examination.”
As an offshoot, Lina ordered Balatbat to explain in writing as to how and why the embarrassing incident happened.
It was learned that the diplomatic pouch was later released.

SAUDI LABOR LAW: ABOUT END OF SERVICE AWARD OR END OF SERVICE BENEFITS








Upon the end of the work relation, the employer shall pay the employee an end-of-service award of a half-month wage for each of the first five years and a one-month wage for each of the following years. 
The end-of-service award shall be calculated on the basis of the last wage and the employee shall be entitled to an end-of-service award for the portions of the year in proportion to the time spent on the job.

a) If the work relation ends due to the employee's resignation and his service was less than two years, the employee shall not be entitled to the end of service award.

b) If the work relation ends due to the employee's resignation and his service was two years and up to 5 years, the employee shall be entitled to one-third of the end of service award.

c) If the work relation ends due to the employee's resignation and his service was more than five years but less than 10 years, the employee shall be entitled to two-thirds of the end of service award.

d) If the work relation ends due to the employee's resignation and his service was 10 years or more, the employee shall be entitled to the full end of service award.

e) If the work relation ends of a female employee within (6) months of her marriage the employee will be entitled to an end of service award equal to the wage of half a month for each year of the first five years and the wage of a month for each year thereafter.



f) If the work relation ends due to force majeure, the employee shall be entitled to an end of service award equal to the wage of half a month for each year of the first five years and the wage of a month for each year thereafter.
g) The employer and employee may agree that the wage used as a basis for calculating the end of service award does not include all or some of the commissions, sales percentages, and similar wage components paid to the employee which are by their nature subject to increase or decrease.

The end of service benefits of employee's rights on the employer in the case of termination of the employment contract, and it is obligatory on the employer to pay the employee at the end of the contract of employment, whether it is a fixed-term contract or indefinite. That's the easy way to estimate end of service benefits expense, the maturity date of the reward, and how to calculate it according to the rules of the Labor Law.
