MABALACAT CITY——The Clark International Airport Corporation has filed theft charges against six Miascor Aviation Services employees who were involved in pilferage at the Clark airport early this week.
Miascor filed separate charges of qualified theft against the suspects who were also terminated from employment last Friday.
"After a thorough investigation with CIAC, we have served a notice of termination to our passenger service agents who admitted to pilfering the baggages of OFW Jovenil Dela Cruz of Pandi, Bulacan," Herman Reyes, Miascor president, said.
The baggages of Dela Cruz were looted inside the Miascor office at the airport terminal.
CIAC acting President and Chief Executive Officer Alexander Cauguiran said he personally confiscated the IDs and access passes of the six Miascor staff.
He directed CIAC authorities to prohibit the said suspects from entering airport premises.
"Thievery has no place in CIAC, whether those involved are airport staff, groundhandlers or contracting parties. Let this filing of criminal charges be a warning to all," Cauguiran said.
Miascor, a ground handler contractor, is under contract with airlines that handle the baggages of passengers.
On Wednesday, Miascor has compensated the passenger for the lost items amounting to P82,824.00.
