AN OFW robbed of his pasalubong at the Clark International Airport (CIA) got his sweet revenge with the sacking of the porters who allegedly emptied his balikbayan box and pilfered his luggage.

CIA acting president Alexander Cauguiran suspended six employees of the airport ground handler MIASCOR Aviation Service after the victim, Jovenil dela Cruz of Pandi, Bulacan, posted a video of his empty balikbayan box and damaged zippers of his pilfered luggage on his Facebook account.

The video, wherein Dela Cruz expressed his dismay over the pilferage and said sorry to his relatives because their pasalubong were gone, went viral by getting two million views and nearly 71,000 shares since its posting on Wednesday.

MIASCOR compensated Dela Cruz for the lost items in the amount of P84,000.

Cauguiran said Thursday he will recommended the termination of the employment of the suspected pilferers. rw: wjg
