PEBA Inc. or Pinoy Expats/OFW Buhay Abroad, a non-profit organization has shared some tips if ever you will be a victim of the “Laglag Bala” modus in NAIA.
IF EVER YOU WILL BE VICTIMIZED BY THE “LAGLAG BALA” MODUS, THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
1. If the staff asks you to open the baggage, don’t allow it. Ask for the airport police, wait for you to call your lawyer, or any legal protector to be present before anything else. Do not open your bag yourself.
2. If there is already a witness present, let the officers retrieve the bullet from your bag. Why? Because of fingerprint. If the bullet is really not yours, there will be no fingerprint of yours that will be retrieved from the fabric where the bullet have been placed or the bullet on the bullet itself.
3. Then, ask for fingerprinting in front of your lawyer and police officials.
4. IF THE RESULTS SAY THAT YOUR FINGERPRINT WAS NOT FOUND ON THE BULLETS: File a case against them + payment for the disturbance and lost time. They should also book your flight.
Let us all stay safe and follow these so we will not be victimized!
