Land Transportation Office (LTO) – Central Visayas Director Victor Caindec is considering taking legal action against an individual from Bohol who is accusing him for allegedly pocketing P500 for every release of motorcycle or motor vehicle registration.
“We are contemplating yet,” Caindec told reporters in a press conference on Saturday, May 21.
The woman went live on Facebook over the weekdays after her motorcycle was impounded.
On her Facebook live, she alleged that Caindec asked P500 for the processing of registration.
Caindec said they had issued a notice to the dealer from where the the woman allegedly bought the motorcycle to explain who among their staff made this “wrongful statement” to this individual.
Caindec clarified that the motorcycle was impounded for lack of registration.
He said upon investigation, LTO-7 found out that the dealer paid the fees only on May 16, 2022.
Caindec said the five-day operation in Bohol last May 16-20 was in response to the complaint lodged with the 8888 Citizen’s Complaint Hotline. The same operation was conducted on election day in Bohol.
However, the operation was marred by objections from angry residents.
