Laglag Bala Updates

Recently, visiting American missionary Lane Michael White has been allowed to leave the country after being cleared of any offense last December 10. White was detained by Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) security last September after a live bullet was allegedly found on his luggage.

According to White, he refused to pay the Php 30,000 in exchange of his freedom. He pleaded not guilty to the charges. He eventually identified alleged suspects in the scheme namely Maria Elma Cena, 46, and Marvin Garcia, 23. Both are members of the Transportation Security Risk Management Bureau of the OTS assigned in NAIA Terminal 4.

“I wouldn’t know what to do without the media on my side. I’m glad I became an instrument in helping the Philippines expose this scheme to the world,” White said in an interview.

Additionally, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has confirmed that they will be conducting further investigations against six NAIA personnel who are possibly connected with the scam.

Along with the afore-mentioned Cegna and Garcia, DOJ will also probe Inspector Adriano Junio of the Aviation Security Group (ASG) along with Seior Police Officer 4 Ramon Bernardo and SPO2s Rolando Clarin and Romy Navarro.
