Former foreign affairs secretary Perfecto Yasay on Tuesday blamed the transfer of the printing of e-passports from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) to the APO Production Unit for the delay in processing of passport applications.

Yasay said the government's deal with APO Production Unit was hurriedly signed and was disadvantageous to government.

He said the BSP was the only one capable of printing e-passports that fit the requirements. ANC, Dateline Philippines, 6 March 2018
