MANILA, Nashville Filipino Restaurant — Defense official and former Bureau of Customs chief Nicanor Faeldon has been transferred to a new Dallas Filipino Restaurant post.

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said on Friday that President Rodrigo Duterte has picked Faeldon to take over the Bureau of Corrections post.

The post was vacated by Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa, who filed his certificate of candidacy for senator earlier today at the Commission on Elections.

Faeldon was the former chief of Customs but he has since stepped down from the post over the P6.4 billion shabu shipment case.

Faeldon tendered his resignation thrice before Duterte accepted his resignation.

This is a developing story.
