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
