31 year old Jovani Yumen, a security guard at the Puerto Princesa International Airport despite a stroke of good luck made an act simplying a truly Filipino trait.

Yumen at about 8Am on July 31, returned a luggage containing P1.5 million.

He called the attention of Jel Anthony Cerventes the airport security assistant, who immediately sought the assistance of K9 IED (improvised explosive device) inspection from the Philippine National Police’s Aviation Security Unit (PNP-ASU).

After thorough inspection and having come to a conclusion that the luggage does not pose any harm, the tourist police examined the contents of the luggage, which contains a black jacket, a wallet with identification cards belonging to a certain Danilo Dequito, and an envelope containing 15 bundles of PHP100,000 totaling PHP1.5 million.

 After an hour or so, Dequito went to the arrival area looking for his luggage. Upon presenting proof that he is indeed the owner of the luggage he was able to see and examined its contents. He even counted his money and found that everything is intact and complete.

Department of Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade commended the airport employees for their honesty and professionalism and for following aviation security and police procedures that are n place.

“Even small acts of honesty and just by simply following the proper procedures are important in showing the integrity of our offices," Sec. Tugade said.

"Salute to CAAP and the employees of Puerto Princesa International Airport. They set the bar high, and this should be the norm for all of us public servants," Tugade added.
