Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte vows to lawyer for victims and appeals directly to President Benigno Aquino III to step-in. The appeal was in response to a plea from a Netherlands based Filipino about to come home but was afraid of falling victim to a bullet-planting scam in the Philippines’ international airport. The Aviation Security Group says 30 cases of people apprehended for bullets in their luggage were recorded from January to early November. A spokesman for the police unit AvSecGroup insisted it’s “impossible” for the policemen to be involved saying they are not involved in the screening of passengers and luggage. At least 40 personnel from the Office for Transportation Security (OTS) are under investigation for various complaints. Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said the President gave “further instructions” to the DOTC “to refine the efforts underway.”

He added there are many assumptions reported in the media that have to be verified first
