OFW’s luggage, boxes pilfered at Clark International Airport

Overseas Filipino worker (OFW) Jovenil dela Cruz took to Facebook to vent his frustration and remind balikbayans to be extra careful with their belongings at the Clark International Airport after valuable items in his luggage and boxes worth P84,000 were stolen.

Dela Cruz arrived in the Philippines from a Singapore flight on December 23, 2017. According to reports, he was told by a certain Philippine Airport Ground Support Solutions Inc. agent Jobel Fernando that he would just be notified once his luggage and boxes arrive. However, dela Cruz claimed that he did not receive any feedback for two weeks, reported by Sunstar.

When he decided to follow up on the items yesterday, January 10, 2018, at the airport, he discovered that his luggage and boxes were pilfered.

Dela Cruz recorded a video of the incident and uploaded it on Facebook where he expressed his dismay.

“Our luggage bags [were] robbed by airport personnel [at the] Clark International Airport Philippines. Sorry sa nagpadala na nawalan kagaya namin. Hindi na ulit kami magtitiwala.

“Nakita naming wasak ang mga zipper [ng bagahe namin]. ‘Yung box namin, bukas na nung dumating kami. Sa sister ko, sorry nawala ang mga T-shirt mo. Nawalan din kami ng mga pasalubong tulad ng Victoria’s Secret, mga lotion, at mga sabon. Sorry na lang po sa mga hindi mabibigyan,” Dela Cruz said in his video.

Clark airport acting president Alexander Cauguiran said on Thursday, January 11, that six employees of MIASCOR Aviation services would face administrative charges for their alleged involvement in the incident, according to a report by Inquirer.

He said that they were also placed under investigation and preventive suspension. Caguiran stressed that he would recommend to MIASCOR the termination of the employees and would ensure such incident would not happen again.
MIASCOR compensated the Filipino with P84,000, the estimated amount of all the lost items.

Dela Cruz advised his fellow OFWs to hand-carry valuable items instead of putting them inside check-in luggage.

“Sa mga OFWs na ba-byahe, ‘wag na kayong bumyahe ng may luggage kasi mananakaw din naman. Mag-hand carry na lang kayo kasi kami sinulit namin ‘yung weight ng luggage. Pinuno namin tapos pagdating dito, dalawa na lang. Half na lang ng luggage ‘yung natira. Nawala ‘yung mga importante, ung mga mamahalin,” said dela Cruz.
