IMMIGRATION OFfiCER RETURNS LOST $1,900 CASH
AN EMPLOYEE of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) will be commended on Monday, October 2, for returning an envelope containing $1,900 cash left behind by an unidentified passenger at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
Reimond Abegail Lagman, a BI employee assigned at the NAIA Terminal 3, found the envelope containing 19 pieces of $100 bills while he was manning the officer-of-the-day counter last September 7.
He immediately turned over the cash to the airport management.
“I commend Mr. Lagman for again showing our countrymen that there are honest employees in our bureau who cannot be corrupted by the color of money even if they are gripped with financial difficulties,” Morente said.
Morente said the identity of the passenger who left behind the cash remains unknown.
The BI has advised the owner of the bills to coordinate with the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) in claiming or recovering his or her lost money. SunStar Philippines
