The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Friday, Oct. 6, awarded the immigration official who, last September, returned $1,900 dollars or about P96,500 left on his counter at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal I.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II on Friday awarded a certificate of recognition to Immigration Officer I Reimond Lagman to commend his good deed.

“Honesty and integrity in government service are core values that we want to inculcate in all our employees in the DOJ Family…Immigration Officer I Reimond Abigeil B. Lagman has exemplified those valued traits” the Justice Department said in a statement.

On Sept. 7, while manning his post, Lagman found a white envelope containing 19 pieces of 100 US dollar bills left on his counter by an unknown passenger. He reported the incident to his supervisors and surrendered the cash to NAIA’s lost and found section.

In a report by GMA News, Lagman said despite his low salary, it never crossed his mind to keep the money to himself.

On September 29, Lagman also received a plaque of commendation from the Bureau of Immigration.

“I commend Mr. Lagman for again showing our countrymen that there are honest employees in our bureau who cannot be corrupted by the color of money,” Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said in a statement.
