OFW from Qatar loses P130K, important papers at NAIA
An overseas Filipino worker from Qatar lost more than P130,000 and important documents upon his arrival at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) last Wednesday.
The OFW, identified as John Michael Fabello, said he had stored the money and the important documents in a pouch placed inside his backpack.
After his arrival at NAIA, Fabello said he briefly placed the backpack in a cart while waiting to pick up his luggage from the carousel.
He only realized the pouch was gone when he arrived home and checked his backpack.
On Thursday, Fabello returned to NAIA to ask airport authorities if he could review the closed-circuit television camera footage at the carousel area for the previous day, but was told there was no recording made at the time of the incident because the camera was then under maintenance.
Fabello is now appealing for help to catch the person responsible for stealing his bag since aside from the money, he also lost important documents such as his passbook, overseas employment certificate and exit pass. —Xianne Arcangel/ALG, GMA News
