Romeo Acop threatens to cite ex-Customs X-ray chief in contempt during House shabu probe
Antipolo City 2nd District Representative Romeo Acop on October 24 threatened to cite in contempt former Bureau of Customs (BOC) X-ray chief Lourdes Mangaoang after she turned her back on lawmakers while she was being grilled in the House probe into smuggled shabu.
The Antipolo politiko was asking Mangaoang why she believes the Customs’ magnetic lifters were not empty based on her X-ray image analysis.
But Mangaoang turned away from Acop to face news cameras.
Acop told her that she should face lawmakers and not the new cameras.
“That is your 2nd discourtesy. The 3rd one, I will move to cite you in contempt,” Acop said.
