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.

P15M worth of misdeclared high-end goods seized at NAIA

Robie de Guzman   •   August 5, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – A shipment of high-end branded goods that were misdeclared as personal effects was recently apprehended at the Port of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), the Bureau of Customs (BOC) said.

In a statement, the BOC said the shipment, which consisted of bags, shoes, wallets and other luxury goods was valued at P15 million.

The items included high-end brands like Chanel, Hermes, Christian Louboutin, Valentino, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Balenciaga bags, shoes, wallets, and earrings.

The bureau said that the shipment was fraudulently declared as personal effects, consisting of shampoo, soap, towels, toiletries, canned goods, milk and chocolates, packed in 17 cartons. It was shipped from Milano, Italy through RRG Freight Service Forwarder in Paicargo Warehouse.

A physical examination of the subject shipment confirmed that it actually consists of high-end goods in commercial quantities.

The BOC said the misdeclaration is an apparent attempt to evade payment of correct duties and taxes by circumventing duty and tax free privileges afforded to balikbayan boxes.

According to Port of NAIA district collector Carmelita Talusan, the shipment will be subjected to seizure and forfeiture proceedings for violation of Section 1400 in relation to Section 1113 of the CMTA.

The records and details of the apprehension shall be referred to the Bureau Action Team Against Smugglers (BATAS) for case profiling and build up against the personalities involved in the foiled smuggling.

3 alleged human trafficking victims intercepted at NAIA – BI

MANILA, Philippines – Three people suspected of being victims of human trafficking and illegal recruitment have been intercepted at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), the Bureau of Immigration (BI) said on Monday.

In a report to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente, BI port operations division acting chief Grifton Medina said the passengers were stopped last week before they could board their flights to the Middle East and Europe.

Medina said one of the victims was bound for Dubai while the two others were destined for Greece, all of them showing intentions to work illegally as undocumented workers.

According to BI’s Travel Control and Enforcement Unit (TCEU), the Dubai-bound passenger was intercepted last 25 July 2020 after the immigration officer noticed that the Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) was not cleared and validated by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration – Labor Assistance Center (POEA-LAC) desk at the NAIA.

Verification with the POEA-LAC later revealed that the said OEC was tampered as it was issued to someone else and not to the said passenger.

The victim then admitted that her trip was processed by her handlers and that her documents were only given to her when she arrived at the airport.

The BI-TCEU also reported that the two Greece-bound passengers who were intercepted last Saturday, August 2, likewise presented fraudulent travel documents, including fake OECs and local employment certificates.

The bureau said that upon interview, they confessed that their documents were only handed to them at the airport. They also said they were recruited to work in Athens by their handlers to whom they each paid P95,000 in return for facilitating their trip and processing their documents.

“Thanks to the vigilance of our primary inspectors for foiling these attempts by human trafficking syndicates to sneak their victims out of the country,” Medina said.

The victims were turned over to the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) for investigation, according to the bureau.

The seized goods include branded watches such as Michael Kors, Fossils, Anne Klein, Charriol, Invicta, Kate Spade, Diesel and Tommy, as well as bags, wallets, shoes — all in commercial quantity, the bureau said.

The BOC-NAIA said it has issued a Warrant of Seizure and Detention against the confiscated goods for violation of the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act.

The bureau added the case records shall also be referred to the Bureau’s Action Team Against Smugglers (BATAS) for a possible criminal complaint against the personalities behind the foiled smuggling attempt.
