    Villar filed Senate Bill 756 that seeks to insert a new section in Republic Act 4136 or the "Land Transportation and Traffic Code".
    This would read as follows: "Any officer or employee of the LTO who is responsible for the registration of a stolen vehicle shall be punished by a fine equivalent to the market value of the stolen motor vehicle registered or imprisonment of at least one year, or both."
    Villar's bill also prescribes termination for the erring LTO personnel. The proposed new section adds: "If found guilty, such officer or employee shall be dismissed from the service with prejudice to reinstatement or reemployment in the government service and that all benefits or privilege he may be entitled shall be forfeited."
    Some of the permits or licenses that the LTO issues for alteration or changes in the motor vehicles are on change color, change chassis/engine/body/design, re-stamping of engines/chassis number, rebuilt motor vehicles among others. LTO also slaps fines to vehicles owners who fail to register the changes in their vehicles.
    "Given the corresponding permits or licenses that vehicle owners have to secure, I don't see any reason why carnapped vehicles are successfully being registered. If stolen vehicles fail to get permits or licenses, there will be no market for carnapped vehicles," Villar said.


    Kailan kaya ma approve to sa senate??

    1-year imprisonment here in the Philippines is more than enough.

    AFAIK yung start ng 1 year is on while the case is being heard diba (while on bail)? so by the time na magkaroon ng decision, or worse even before a decision, na-iserve na yung penalty? sa kabagalan ba naman ng justice system dito sa atin. Sana mali ang pagkaintindi ko. anyone can give more detailed info on this?

    1 year is counted from the time the erring employee starts to serve the penalty. If the erring employee is on bail he is at liberty and is merely subject to reportorial requirements and appearance during hearings. Unless hindi siya mag file ng bail.

    Here's wishing they'll pass the law and strictly enforce it.
