‘IMPORTATION CAN LEAD TO SMUGGLING’
Importers of Korean cars behind Camiña’s death plot

THE head of the regional office of the Land Transportation Office (LTO-6) is willing to provide information and evidence on the links of a group trying to import Korean cars in Western Visayas to threats against his life.
Gerard Camiña, LTO-6 regional director, said he welcomes the investigation initiated by the Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO) on the threats he received the past weeks.
“Of course I will provide what the police wants because I want to get to the bottom of this,” Camiña said.
Two months ago, unidentified suspects lobbed a grenade at Camiña’s ancestral home in Arevalo, Iloilo City, an incident he linked to disputes with certain transport groups.
But Camiña said he has reason to believe that the threats and bombing of his house are connected to a group who wants to dump imported second hand Korean cars in the region.
