  • PNP says syndicate unlikely behind bullet scam
    By Rosette Adel (philstar.com) | Updated November 2, 2015 - 5:41pm


    A passenger's luggage protected by tape with a warning for
    alleged bullet-planting culprits at the Ninoy Aquino
    International Airport Terminal on Nov. 2, 2015.

    MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police Aviation Security Group (Avsegroup) on Monday said it is unlikely that a syndicate is involved in the alleged bullet-planting, or "laglag-bala," incidents at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

    In a press briefing, Police Superintendent Jeanne Panisan, public information Officer of PNP-Avsegroup, said authorities have not caught anyone in the act of placing bullets in passengers' bags inside the airport.

    "Wala po kaming nakita na may nagtanim ng bala," Panisan said.

    Panisan said only passengers are allowed to touch their baggage, while some hire porters to help them lift their bags.

    She clarified, however, that is it the Office of Transport Security, not the PNP, that is in charge of baggage screening procedures.

    She said the number of apprehensions on ammunition jumped from 12 in 2014 to 30 from January to November 1 this year.

    Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1
    PNP spokesperson Chief Superintendent Wilben Mayor said the police are open to conducting an investigation into the incidents.

    "We welcome investigation. We want the truth to come out," Mayor said.

    Panisan, meanwhile, advised the public to stop carrying bullets to prevent getting into trouble. She said some Filipinos still carry bullets as amulets believed to be good luck charms or "agimat."

    "Malalim ang paniniwala ng mga Pilipino sa mga amulet o agimat," Panisan said.

    "Make sure po na pag umalis tayo 'wag na po tayong magtake chances na 'hindi, agimat lang 'to' kasi pwede pong ma-confiscate ito, makakasuhan po kayo at mas malaki po ang magiging epekto kung sa ibang bansa po kayo maiintercept," she advised.

    Mayor, on the other hand, reiterated that mere possession of bullets is a violation of Republic Act 10591.

    "We don't want innocents to be incarcerated abroad," Mayor said.

    Several lawmakers already urged the government to conduct a probe into the bullet-planting incidents. Malacanang also vowed to order an investigation on the alleged cases.

    PNoy orders DOTC to improve efforts vs 'laglag-bala' scam



    MANILA, Philippines — President Benigno Aquino III on Monday ordered the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) to improve its efforts against the alleged "laglag-bala" extortion scheme of airport authorities.

    Aquino met this morning with DOTC officials in Malacañang amid increasing reports of the bullet-planting scam being perpetrated at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminals.

    "The President has been briefed and has given further instructions in order to refine the efforts under way. The DOTC as the lead agency will be updating the public," Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said in a text message to reporters.

    Lacierda did not elaborate the instructions given by the president.

    Perpetrators of the alleged scheme work by extracting bullets, which they themselves supposedly planted, from the passengers' luggage. They then intimidate the victims to force them to pay up.

    The latest incident involved a 65-year-old grandmother departing for Singapore on Sunday morning who was accosted after a bullet was allegedly found inside her carry-on bag.

    Lacierda said on Saturday that Aquino and Transportation Secretary Joseph Abaya had ordered an investigation.

    He said additional closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras will be placed inside NAIA to better monitor the situation.

    Lacierda described the situation as lamentable as he reminded the public to be more mindful of their luggage.

    "We're looking at the process. We're looking at how that happened. We’re looking at the personnel involved," Lacierda told state-run Radyo ng Bayan.

    "We want to take away that fear from them. We will ensure the safety of each and every passenger who uses our terminals," he added.

  • Nakaka-hiya na talaga tayo. . . putang-inang mga gumagawa nito, ang kakapal ng mukha. >:(

    At itong gobyerno naman natin, parang wala man lang concrete effort to investigate this at panagutin ang liderato ng MIAA (command responsibility eh). . punyetang gunggong na administrasyon.

    NO TO LIBERAL PARTY CANDIDATES (National Level).

  • Tonistork,

    aba naman naku, ang puso mo Sir...baka malaglag yan sa keyboard lol... >:D

    ontopic;

    ...obviously, since malapit na ang pasko, naglipana na naman ang iba't ibang raket..ika nga e para paraan lang yan, kung bakit nakakalusot sa administrasyon ng NAIA yan, sila sila lang din ang nakaka alam nyan. And hindi lang maganda dyan e sariling kababayan ang nagiging biktima...mga nagbabalik bayan na karamihan OFW na alam naman natin na hindi madali ang mga trabaho sa ibang bansa. Kung mamumultahan sila or makukulong dahil lang sa ganyang kalokohan ng mismong nasa loob ng NAIA...e talaga namang nakakalungkot ang ganyan. Nagastusan ka na ng wala sa oras, masasayang pa ang ilang araw na maari kang madetain or makulong habang iniinquest ka. Pinaka nde maganda...ginawa kang tanga tangahan sa mismong bayan mo.

    Kahit paano mo isipin, paanong makakalusot yang mga bala na yan dun sa pinanggalingan mo, lalo na kung sa europe at amerika ka galing considering na napaka higpit dun? At pagkatpos pagdating dito e binuksan ang bagahe mo sa immigration e may bala kang dala? ...kalokohan diba?

    ...kung pulitiko yan, pwede pa...pero kung OFW na obvious naman (at kulang na lang itatak ang pagiging OFW sa NOO) ... hindi naman siguro mahirap isipin nila na di hamak naman na mas okay ipasalubong sa pamilya ang isang latang corned beef at kahit ilang pirasong tsokolate ....kesa BALA.

    ...nde naman siguro mahirap imemorize yun....diba? :o :o :o :o

  • Bullet-planting scandal a hot topic on social media



    The laglag-bala (bullet-planting) scandal at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has become a hot topic on social media websites and has become a global topic.

    A video of a television show in Japan demonstrating how the bullet-planting scheme works made the rounds over social media websites.
    The video, originally posted yesterday by Facebook user Shinjoy Noisap Martinez, showed Japanese TV hosts explaining how the bullets are planted – airport security officials would inspect the bag and spot the bullet inside the bag and detain the passenger who owns the luggage found with bullets.

    The segment hosts also explained the plastic wrapping services offered at NAIA to prevent pilferage and tampering. The cost of plastic wrapping is P160 per bag, regardless of the size of the luggage.

    The video also showed tourists with plastic-covered luggage.
    Martinez posted the video with a caption saying the Philippines is a country of embarrassment because of the scam and that even Japan has made it a big issue. 

    Another netizen commented on the same post that she is nervous about going back to the Philippines, fearing she might be victimized.
    The owner of the video replied that he is planning to go home this December but due to the alarming incidents of bullet planting, he will just postpone it and go home next year.

    In another post, Facebook user Wilfredo Garrido mentioned how paranoid travelers are in one of the world’s worst airports.

    One of the last victims of the bullet planting scam was Japanese national Kazunobu Sakamoto, whose luggage was found with 9 mm round upon x-ray inspection. He was arrested on Oct. 25 and charged with illegal possession of ammunition, along with an OFW bound for Hong Kong who allegedly carried a bullet for a carbine rifle inside her handcarried bag. Sakamoto posted bail of P80,000.

    Overseas workers earlier expressed fear they might fall victim to the scam when they return home for the holidays.

    The public outrage focused on the airport officials and security personnel at the NAIA.

    The bullet-planting scheme even became a mobile game application allowing smartphone users to play while waiting for their flights at the country’s airports.

    A Filipino developer recently launched the game application “Tanim Bala” (bullet planter), which can be downloaded through Google Play.

    Users will have to move their cursor from left to right to avoid bullets that fall into their luggage.

    “These greedy administrators want to plant a bullet in your bag and if they succeed, you’ll end up paying $1,000. Of course you would not let them do that!” the app description read.

    The app, created by developer Argene Tanyong of Kulit Games, received mostly positive response from Android smartphone users. It currently has a rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

    Tanyong said he decided to come up with the game as a “stress reliever,” particularly among travelers worrying about the possibility of falling victim to the scam. He added he is now working on an iOS version for Apple users.

    The scam also made it to a primetime show of a leading news channel in the US.

    The issue was tackled by Greta van Susteren, host of the Fox News program “On the Record,” last Nov. 4 amid outrage in the Philippines over the extortion racket that reportedly targets tourists and migrant workers.

    In the segment “Off the Record,” Susteren said an American friend of Filipino descent had warned her of the scheme after being informed that the television host is traveling overseas next week.
    The television commentator then cited reports about the supposed planting of bullets in the luggage of travelers to extort money from them.

    “There are reports that at the Manila international airport, international travelers, as many as 30 in the last 12 months, five of those in just the last two weeks, are being targeted by Filipino airport security officials who plant live ammunition in their luggage and then bust the international traveler for having bullets in his bag,” van Susteren said.

    She said some passengers were even held for days and were told that they can pay a fine “or sit in the slammer facing charges.” – With  Alexis Romero, Janvic Mateo, Vberni Regalado
