MANILA, Philippines — Alas-tres kwarenta’y singko ng madaling araw nitong Miyerkules nang lumapag sa Ninoy Aquino International Airport ang eroplanong sinakyan ni Pambansang Kamao Manny Pacquiao mula sa Los Angeles, California.

Ngayon lang nakauwi sa bansa si Pacquiao dahil kinailangan pa niyang magpa opera sa balikat dahil sa rotator cuff injury matapos ang laban kay Floyd Mayweather Jr. sa Las Vegas.

Sa kanyang pagharap sa media, sinagot niya ang ilang katanungan kaugnay ng kanyang injury at resulta ng laban kay Mayweather.

Ayon kay Pacquiao, kumbinsido siyang siya ang nanalo sa laban by two points nang panoorin niya nang paulit-ulit ang recorded version ng mega fight.

Ngunit bilang isang professional boxer, tiwala siya sa desisyon ng referee at judges kaya payo niya sa boxing fans na tanggapin na lamang ang resulta.

Hindi rin niya dinamdam ang pagkatalo kay Mayweather dahil panalo naman siya sa puso ng kanyang mga taga-suporta.

Pahayag ni Manny Pacquiao, “Even if I do not feel well after the third round, fourth round, if we look at it round by round, you’ll see that we didn’t lose. But like I said, we respect the decision of the judges.”

(Kahit hindi na maganda pakiramdam ko sa 3rd round at 4th round, kung titingnan natin kada-round, makikita nyo na hindi tayo natalo. Pero gaya nga ng sinabi ko, dapat respetuhin natin ang desisyon ng mga hurado.)

Payo rin niya sa ating mga kababayan na huwag nang patulan ang mga pasaring ni Mayweather.

Sa ngayon ay wala pa siyang plano sa boxing career dahil focus niya muna ang pagpapagaling sa kanyang balikat.

“I haven’t discussed with anyone about my next fight. My focus right now is my shoulder recovery and make it 100 percent okay, and my focus is on my Congress work and family.”

(Hindi ko pa naitatalakay kanino man ang susunod kong laban. Ako ay nakatuon ngayon sa pagpapagaling ng aking balikat na maging maayos na ito nang 100 porsyento, at ang isip ko ngayon ay nasa trabaho ko sa Kongreso at sa pamilya.)

Samantala, nagsagawa rin ng motorcade si Pacquiao mula Makati hanggang Maynila.

Dito namigay siya ng mga t-shirt at CD sa mga nag-aabang na fans.

Hati naman opinyon ng Filipino boxing fans sa usapin kung dapat pa itong muling lumaban matapos ang operasyon sa kanyang balikat.

Para sa boxing fan na si Oscar Ibarra, “Gusto pa namin siyang bumalik sa boxing sapagkat nakita namin ang kanyang laban halos wala naman siyang naramdamang tama na mabigat.”

(We still want him to return to boxing because we saw that he did not suffer any serious damage from the fight. That’s why he should continue to fight.)

Para naman kay Jesus Robles, “Politics na lang sir, wag nang boxing kasi medyo marami nang nararamdaman si Pambansang Kamao natin. OK na yun para sa atin hero na siya.”

(He should look into politics rather than boxing. He should take a rest because our nation’s fist is having difficulties. He’s done his job. For us, he’s already our hero.)

Personal naman na binati at kinamusta ni Pangulong Aquino si Pacquiao nang mag-courtesy call ngayong hapon sa Malakanyang.

Kasamang sumalubong sa Malakanyang ang ilang miyembro ng gabinete tulad nina Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa, Communication Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. (Bernard Dadis / UNTV News)

MANILA, Philippines – Eight Chinese nationals who are alleged members of a loan shark syndicate and their Filipino driver were arrested by authorities after purportedly attempting to abduct a fellow Chinese at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on Friday.

Authorities identified the Chinese suspects as Yugi Cheng, Yuhang Huang, Yao Xiang, Xin Zhao, Liu Huan, Pan Changlin, Nie Shaolin, Gan Siguo while the Filipino driver was named as Jesus Solinap Jr.

Airport officials said the suspects were arrested after they were caught forcing a man into a vehicle.

The suspects have been turned over to the Philippine National Police Anti-Kidnapping Group as well as the vehicle they used.

Authorities have earlier reported about the operation of Chinese loan sharks and kidnappers who abduct fellow Chinese nationals who fail to cough up their gambling debts.

Police said that more than 50 cases of casino gambling-related kidnappings involving Chinese nationals have been reported since 2017. Victims are usually held captive until their relatives agree to pay ransom through wire transfer in exchange for the hostage’s release. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Mai Bermudez)

MIAA implements tighter security at NAIA terminals

Maris Federez   •   October 31, 2019

The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) is implementing stricter security at all terminals of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport for the influx of passengers.

MIAA General Manager Ed Monreal said they raised the airport alert to security condition number 2.

“May mga panibagong ipinapatupad. May mga random checks ho tayong ginagawa. May mga k9 na nakadeploy. May mga tao at kapulisan na nakadeploy sa ating paliparan. At hindi ko pupwedeng idiscuss in detail iyong iba pang panuntunan to make sure we are all secured,” Monreal said.

MIAA data shows a slightly lower number of passengers in domestic flights this year with 388,218, compared to 2018 with 378,731.

Conversely, the volume of international flight passengers has increased this year with 421,495, compared to that of last year with 381,001.

Airport authorities have yet to announce any flight delays or cancellations as they expect around 130,000 passengers to flock the arrival and departure areas on Thursday’s schedule. (with details from Mai Bermudez) /mbmf

MIAA inspects facilities ahead of Undas rush

MANILA, Philippines – Officials from the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) and the Department of Transportation (DOTr) conducted inspections of public transport facilities in anticipation of the influx of passengers during the observance of Undas break.

MIAA general manager Ed Monreal said the number of passengers going through the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is expected to increase beginning Monday, Oct. 28.

In preparation for the anticipated high volume of travelers, MIAA raised the alert for NAIA security personnel.

Additional x-ray machines and explosive trace detectors will also be deployed in the airport as the agency implements heightened security and inspection on passengers and luggage.

Personnel manning check-in counters for domestic flights will also be increased as promised by several airline companies. Additional personnel manning immigration booths in airport will also be deployed to avoid long queuing of passengers for international flights.

Airport authorities also reminded passengers to arrive three hours ahead of international flights, and two hours for domestic flights, to allow enough time for security inspection and other airport procedures.

“Siyempre, meron tayong mga special security requirements gaya ng papunta ng America, gaya ng papunta ng Australia, ‘yung mga airlines have encouraged their passengers to come in slightly earlier pero as a standard, 3 oras po tayo sa international 2 oras tayo sa domestic,” Monreal said.

The MIAA chief also assured they have coordinated with airline companies to prevent flights from being delayed. He cited the improvement in the on-time performance of airline companies based on the recent report of the Air Carriers Association of the Philippines.

“Mas malaki po ang inimprove magmula ng July. They are hitting 85% already ‘yan po ang report ng ating mga kasamahan Cebu Pacific, Air Asia, CebGo tsaka yung PALEX. I hope they would maintain that or even surpass what they have reported to us,” he said.
