MIAA probes use of fake access pass

Following the Senate hearing on Tuesday, 29 November, on trafficked OFWs in Myanmar, Manila International Airport Authority General Manager Cesar Chiong has directed a thorough probe into the alleged use of fake airport passes to aid in human trafficking attempts.

On four separate occasions in October and this month, MIAA-contracted security guards at NAIA Terminal 3 thwarted attempts by four passengers posing as employees of an airport concessionaire to bypass immigration formalities. Their cases were endorsed to the Inter-agency Council Against Trafficking for disposition.

The MIAA is committed to fully support multi-agency initiatives to bring perpetrators of human trafficking to justice. With the continued help of law enforcement agencies, the Bureau of Immigration, and the intelligence community, the MIAA will continue to beef up security measures to safeguard the lives and uphold the dignity of Overseas Filipino Workers passing through the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
