Another overseas FIilipino worker (OFW) has allegedly been victimized by unscrupulous personnel over at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). The woman has even pleaded for help from President Rodrigo Duterte, asking that such acts may soon be stopped in the country.
In a report by GMA News’ State Of The Nation just this week, Corazon Maquirang shared her negative sentiments about losing some precious items on her balikbayan box.
“Mga hayop na ‘yon, ako pang dinali! OFW lang ako…nakakadismaya naman. Minsan ka nga lang uuwi, magbabakasyon ka tapos ganun pa mangyayari,” she angrily said.
(“Those bastards victimized me! I’m just an OFW… This is really disappointing. You only visit the country once in a while and things like this happen.”)
According to her, she only noticed that the box was missing six plastic bags containing expensive gifts for her loved ones. She even said that the box had a TSA-marked tape which may be an attempt to divert the blame to the American organization. She got in touch with TSA via email but they told her that if her box was opened in the United States, the box would’ve come with a “notice of inspection.” Along with that, the box should’ve come with a sticker with barcode that would identify who inspected it. All of these were clearly absent on the said box. Corazon even pointed out that she noticed that the TSA tape had a different color with the first TSA tape used on her box.
“Dito [sa Pilipinas] tinira ‘yan [kahon]. Talagang hindi nagbabago ‘yang NAIA na ‘yan. [Pres.] Duterte do something about this,” the poor woman lamented.
(“The robbery obviously happened here in the Philippines. NAIA never changes. Pres. Duterte do something about this.”)
Ed Monreal, spokesman of the Manila International Airport Authority, said they will quickly investigate the incident.
