MANILA - Business as usual in Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), hours after the last group of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) delegates left the country, a departing overseas Filipino worker was caught on Friday evening at the airport for alleged possession of a bullet.
Mark Angelo Yunida, a seaman bound for San Francisco, California, managed to pass through the initial security check at the departure area of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 2 without problem. However, after getting clearance from the immigration counter, a bullet for a 9mm caliber pistol was found with his wallet as he was passing through the final security check.
Yunida denied owning the ammunition and claimed that an unidentified person bumped him right after he checked in at the airline counter.
Charges were formally filed by airport authorities today at the Pasay Prosecutor's Office against Yunida.
