CLARK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – A fact finding investigation is now ongoing on the reported Theft on the luggage of an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) that he posted live and went viral on social media.

Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) chief Alexander Cauguiran said on Thursday that he has ordered a fact-finding investigation as of last night.

Earlier, an OFW shared his sad experience in a post on social media complaining of losing his valuables as he showed his pilfered luggage outside the police office at this airport.

The live Facebook post went viral with 46,933 shares and 21,700 likes as of press time.

A certain Jov En Ros who went live on Fb said he came home on December 23 while his luggage arrived the following day. But only on January 10 that he got notified to get his luggage here only to find out that most of the valuables were already missing.

“Our luggage/bags were robbed by airport personnel in Clark International Airport Philippines,” the OFW said.

“Nakita namen wasak lahat ang mga zipper, wasak lahat (We found out that all the zippers were destroyed, all were destroyed),” he lamented as he showed three pieces of luggage and a box that was apparently empty.

“Nawalan lahat kami ng pasalubong like Victoria’s Secret lotion, soaps…(We lost all our souvenirs for you like Victoria’s Secret lotion and soaps),” he decried.

He advised returning OFWs just to bring hand carry luggage to avoid being robbed. The CIAC investigation signed by Chief Insp. Adriano DR Junio Jr. of the Clark airport police, revealed that the OFW, identified as Jovinal C. Dela Cruz, 34, and his companion Rosemarie Campo Versoza, 36, arrived via Jet Star flight 3K 779 from Singapore.

The lost contents of their luggage were valued at P82,824 which the MIASCOR, one of the ground handlers of the airport, agreed to settle.

MIASCOR station manager Mark Anthony Esteban and his staff Hazel David said the suspects have been placed under preventive suspension pending an administrative investigation.

Cauguiran said he will recommend the termination and fi ling of criminal charges against the suspects.
