Eric Ines, General Manager of the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), expressed deep appreciation for the honesty of Victor Perez, an employee at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), after Perez returned USD10,000 that he found on the floor at the east bridge of NAIA Terminal 1 arrival extension on April 13.

Perez, 52, who works as a porter at NAIA, was performing his duties when he noticed a bundle of US dollar bills on the pavement. Without hesitation, Perez immediately sought out the lost and found office to turn over the money, believing that the owner would surely be looking for it.

Upon further inspection, the bundle contained 100 pieces of one hundred US dollar bills, approximately amounting to PHP565,000. Through CCTV footage, it was confirmed that a Korean national, who arrived via Asiana flight that morning, was the owner of the money. The Korean national had reported that the money fell out of his pocket while descending the ramp leading to the arrival extension area.

Perez has dedicated 32 years to NAIA, working in various roles. For the past decade, he has served as a porter/pushcart retriever under a porterage concessionaire in NAIA.

In recognition of his integrity and exemplary conduct, MIAA GM Eric Ines has ordered the awarding of commendations to Perez during MIAA’s May flag-raising ceremony.
