Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao faces yet another unseemly scandal
Manny Pacquiao faces yet another unseemly scandal as his foundation comes under scrutiny
Manny Pacquiao has become embroiled in a bizarre lawsuit amid claims that his foundation failed to pay shipping charges on a consignment that was seized by customs authorities in his native Philippines.
The Manny Pacquiao Foundation, which the pound-for-pound boxing king uses to support his favorite charities, tried to import a shipment of "relief goods" from the United States to the Philippines using an unnamed logistics company in 2009. According to TMZ, when customs officials found the containers to be holding used clothes – which do not qualify as "relief goods" under Filipino law and are subject to excise duties – the shipment was impounded.
Boxing star Manny Pacquiao's foundation is embroiled in a bizarre lawsuit. As a result of the load not being delivered to its destination, it is claimed, the foundation refused to pay its bill with the shipper. However, all major logistics companies, such as FedEx and UPS, include a clause in every contract that insists on full payment, even if a package is not delivered due to customs irregularities.
The foundation is being sued for the full shipping charge of $35,806.36, plus interest, while the containers continue to sit undistributed in a Filipino port.
