Uniform Rental Services for seafarers is one of obvious and prevalent corruptions that has been happening in the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) for quite a while now that goes to the pocket of MARINA Employees Cooperative (MEC).
According to the seafarers, there are hundreds of Seafarers that go to the MARINA office where their pictures are needed to be taken donning the standard seafarer uniform with shoulder boards. MARINA employees provide the uniforms to be worn for only less than 30 seconds, just during the pictorial, and you need to cash out Php25.00 for the rental service of the filthy and dirty uniform.
I, myself included, have already experienced the corruption.
