THE Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) expressed dismay over a female officer of Office of the Transportation Security (OTS) who reportedly swallowed $300 that she took from the wallet of a departing passenger.
MIAA Officer-in-Charge Bryan Co said airport frontliners whose actions completely negate MIAA’s efforts to improve the service levels in our airport, have no place in NAIA.
According to OTS, they have completed the initial investigation on their personnel, who are currently under preventive suspension, pending a more comprehensive investigation.
“We trust the leadership of the Office for Transportation Security. Their immediate request for viewing of the CCTV footage shortly after the incident happened is a manifestation of their resolve to take quick action against erring personnel.
We believe that they are doing what is necessary to police their ranks and protect the reputation of the greater majority of frontliners who remain true to their oath of office,” Co said.
