He also urged the people not to hesitate to report alleged tanim bala scheme to the government.
Netizen Kristine Bumanglag-Moran on June 15 said in her Facebook post that she was victimized by “Tanim Bala” in NAIA, however, she was not forced to cancel her flight because of the new policies of the government against the infamous modus.
Meanwhile, Department of Transportation (DOTr) said Sunday that the security personnel who checked the luggage of Ms. Bumanglag didn’t commit any irregularities during the inspection.
According to them, the luggage of the government employee was still wrapped in plastic when they discovered the bullet via x-ray operator.
They also found out that the father of Ms. Bumanglag is a retired Marine while her brother is working as a cop.
Statement of DOTr
DOTr also assured that the people would never be victimized by tanim bala again because of their new measures that would prevent the scam.
“Note that since the Duterte administration took over, not a single passenger has missed a flight due to a piece of ammunition. Not a single passenger was asked to pay any amount to anyone, which is what the “tanim bala” scheme is all about.” DOTr said in their statement.
