Planting of bullets by Philippine airport officials in passengers' baggage subject to investigation

Two members of the House of Representatives are seeking a probe of Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) officials for failing to curb the alleged “tanim bala” (planting-a-bullet) scam, which victimizes airline passengers.

In the supposed scam, airport passengers are detained after a bullet is found in their luggage, and then asked to fork over money in exchange for the dropping of charges against them.

A party-list group of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) is also urging President Benigno Aquino III to fire MIAA General Manager Jose Angel Honrado for allowing the scam to persist under his watch.
