MANILA, Philippines — What was once called an “illegal” order to bring in sugar from abroad has been ruled a simple case of miscommunication as Malacañang absolved former agriculture officials involved in the botched importation plan.


While the Office of the President absolved the former officials from any charges related to the sugar importation mess, it still "admonished" them "to be more prudent and circumspect in the performance of their duties." These duties are no longer theirs as most of them quit their posts in the middle of the mess.


According to News5, the Office of the President has ruled that the issuance of the controversial Sugar Order No. 4, which would have brought in 300,000 metric tons of sugar into the country, was done in good faith.
