PASAY CITY, Philippines – Parcels containing ecstasy pills with an estimated value of P2.1 million were intercepted at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), according to the Bureau of Customs.
The illegal drugs, which were seized at the NAIA Central Mail Exchange Center in Pasay City, reportedly arrived from the Netherlands through a certain G. Voorthuzen.
A total of 1,268 tablets were found in the packages that were declared as light boxes.
The parcels arrived in October last year but authorities only examined it on Thursday after nobody claimed it for months.
The parcels only indicated an address sans the name of the consignee, which led BOC officials to believe that these were just a trial package.

MANILA, Philippines — Two drug suspects were nabbed at the parking lot of Sunshine Mall in Taguig City on Monday (February 4) by the joint forces of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Region 4-A (Calabarzon) and PDEA-Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).
The suspects were identified as Abdul Kalipa, 19, and Jamil Umpar, 29, who hail from Marawi and North Cotabato respectively.
Two hundred grams (200g) of suspected shabu worth P1.2 million were seized from the suspects.
PDEA said that the information given by their office at Camp Vicente Lim helped greatly in the arrest of the suspects who were operating in Taguig.
The suspects strongly denied any involvement in illegal drugs.
“’Di ko alam na ganyan ang laman. Sabi niya sakin chocolate. Biglaan ang pangyayari. Kung alam ko lang na ganyan ang laman ng plastic, sinauli ko na sa kaniya,” said Umpar.
“Hindi ko naman po alam na may dala pong iligal po. Pumasok ako sa sasakyan tapos hindi ko naman po alam na may dalang iba,” said Kalipa.
The suspects will face drug charges for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Act of 2002. —Sherwin Culubong | UNTV News & Rescue

Authorities arrested businessman Dong Yi Shen aka Kenneth Dong on Monday (February 4) over his alleged involvement as facilitator of the P6.4 billion shabu shipment from China that slipped past the Bureau of Customs (BOC) in 2017.
Operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation Anti-Organized and Transnational Crime Division (NBI-AOTCD) arrested Dong at 2pm in Lot 87, Block 12, Phase 2, Katarungan Village, Muntinlupa City.
