TWO FACES OF OFW VICTIMS OF BULLET PLANTING AT NAIA


A Qatar-bound OFW named Melody Valdez of Pangasinan was apprehended on Nov 3 after an x-ray screener spotted a bullet wrapped in plastic in her brown luggage. Inquirer reported that the bag of Qatar-bound OFW Melody Valdez, 40, allegedly contained a .45 cal. bullet when it went through the initial security screening checkpoint of Naia Terminal 1 at 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
Valdez initially denied having any ammunition in her bag, which was tightly wrapped in plastic.  It was close to 10 p.m. when her recruitment officer arrived and she agreed to open her luggage for inspection.  The bullet was found inside a pouch.
She denied the bullet was hers and claimed that somebody might have planted the ammunition when she used the restroom and momentarily left her baggage.
“Alam ko naman po na bawal magdala ng bala kaya malakas ang loob ko na pabuksan ang maleta ko. Hindi ko po alam talaga na may bala sa loob ng maleta ko,"


Via Rappler news: Gloria Ortinez was arrested on October 25 and prevented from leaving the country for Hong Kong after authorities claimed to have found a bullet wrapped in red cloth inside her bag at NAIA 2. According to media reports, she was released on October 27.

The 56-year-old migrant worker has denied that the bullet was hers. Ortinez also said that she would never bring the bullet with her as she was well aware of Hong Kong's strict security laws.
