OTS PERSONNEL REWARDED P1,000 FOR EACH CONTRABAND APPREHENDED AT NAIA


VIA GMA NEWS
"A memo from the Office of Transportation Security (OTS) dated June 3, 2015 shows the OTS has a cash reward policy for finding contraband items such as weapons and explosives at security checkpoints.
In an exclusive report by Jun Veneracion on GMA News' early evening newscast "24 Oras" on Tuesday, the memo entitled "Proposed rewards/awards for deserving OTS personnel" provided for rewards of up to P1,000 for explosives, weapons, stunning devices" and dangerous drugs found by OTS personnel or Security Screening Officers (SSOs).
Transport Security Risk Management Bureau Asst. Admin. Dir. Roberto Almadin confirmed the existence of the memos but he said only two to three people have been given rewards.
He asked the public to disassociate the memos from the "laglag-bala" extortion scheme.
The same memo, also signed by OTS administrator Roland Recomono, also stated that the rewards were instituted "to boost the welfare and morale of OTS personnel".
A later memo dated July 8 had a revision of the category list which indicated that OTS personnel could claim rewards for a single piece of explosive and for every five pieces of ammunition found per month."

Pres. NoyNoy Aquino said that the tanim-bala issue was only sensationalized and only a small percentage of the entire passengers are victims. Watch the video here
