The officer’s behaviour significantly breached the Civil Service Code of Conduct as set out in section 5(2)(a)(b)(e) and (f) of the Public Service Management Law, as read with the Customs Department’s , the Collector said.

He said the dismissal is strictly in response to her conduct as a Senior Customs Officer on the day of the incident. It is not as a result of the allegations of corruption which were made against her by a customer and which are the subject of an ongoing investigation by the Anti-Corruption Commission. It would be inappropriate for him to comment on those allegations at this time, the Collector emphasised.
