STATE DEPARTMENT ADVISES OBAMA TO WRAP HIS BRIEFCASE WHEN HE VISITS THE PHILIPPINES FOR THE APEC SUMMIT

imageWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) –  U.S. President Barack Obama is just one of the many dignitaries confirmed to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit to be held this month in Manila, Philippines.

Recent  developments at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) have sent chills to the international community and has prompted the U.S. State Department to issue a travel advisory to Americans traveling to the Philippines, including Obama.

NAIA has been in the headlines recently because of a scheme called laglag bala  or tanim bala in which incoming and outgoing passengers at NAIA are being detained for bullets found in their luggage as they pass through airport security.  It is alleged that the bullets are being planted by airport personnel with the intent of extorting money from the unsuspecting passengers.

Obama is known to want to carry his own overnight bag and briefcase whenever he travels to other countries.

The State Department has therefore advised Obama to wrap his briefcase with plastic when he arrives in and departs from Manila so that he is not victimized by the laglag bala schemers.

Many passengers flying in and out of NAIA have resorted to wrapping their luggage and carry-on bags with plastic to prevent the schemers from planting bullets without their knowledge.

    1. This is the most lowly and stupid corruption that is happening in my country, and the most inefficient reaction or action by the government. I support Duterte’s ideas of perpetrators eating the bullet. These people put our country and the people living in other countries in shame internationally. My God what happen to my beloved country I hope You will give us a good president who can act swiftly, strong, without fear of implementing the laws, and restore the pride of the whole nation. Few people destroy the good image of millions of Filipinos.
