Corrupt personnel involved in the so-called “tanim bala” scam at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport may soon end up eating the bullets they plant in passengers’ luggage.
President-elect Rodrigo Duterte hinted at this Saturday night, June 4, during his victory party at the Crocodile Park in Davao City.
“Yung lagay-lagay ng bala na yan, huwag ninyong gagawin yan. Kakainin nyo talaga yan,” Duterte said.
The laglag-bala or tanim-bala scheme had victimized many overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and Filipinos bound for abroad.
Victims would be told a bullet was found during an inspection of their luggage, and would be asked to pay up or risk being held at the airport and missing their flight.
