MIAA probes liquid eraser scam


AFTER the “laglag-bala” scandal at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) , another alleged scam revealed by a Filipina passenger has triggered investigation. The Manila International Airport Authority MIAA), the operator of the premier airport, has conducted an investigation regarding the case of Angie Nogot who claimed she was a victim of “liquid eraser scam” at the NAIA terminal 1 on January 24, 2016 when she was about to fly to Japan. Nogot, a resident in Japan, accused through social media the personnel of the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA), an agency under the Department of Tourism (MIAA), of erasing her name from her alien registration card. TIEZA personnel manned the travel tax counters. MIAA spokesman David de Castro said that the authority had already talked with the TIEZA personnel involved. “An investigation is already being made regarding this case in coordination with TIEZA of DOT,” MIAA spokesman David de Castro said.

    TIEZA personnel that manned the travel tax counters? That is where the CASH is located and if the taxes that were collected went straight to their pockets, it can never be audited because there were no names stored in their data base. Mr Honorado still the General Manager at NAIA? If he is, he needs to step down and be replaced with more competent GM. Have a little bit of what we call DELICADEZA, Mr. Honorado!
