The management of Starlite passenger terminal at the Tagbilaran Tourist Port continues to gather criticisms for questionable security system after a reported former member of Kuratong Baleleng Gang managed to sneak in a firearm unnoticed.
Nanette Nicasio, manager of Starlite terminal at the Tagbilaran Tourist Port, earned criticisms from the public as she tried to wash hands in the alleged lapses of the security personnel in the incident which she described as an isolated incident.
Nicasio said the security personnel on duty claimed that they thoroughly frisked all the passengers who came in that time but no one was found carrying a firearm, short of saying the firearm confiscated from the suspect was planted evidence.
She also explained that the incident caused no commotion inside the passenger terminal because the arresting officers calmly invited the suspect to go with them and that it was outside the terminal that they discovered the firearm that he was carrying.
The manager of Starlite terminal, however, admitted she was not present when the team from the provincial police enforced the warrant of arrest against the wanted person from Ozamiz City who was then about to board the Oceanjet bound for Dapitan City.
The terminal manager assured the public, though, that they will fine tune the services of Starlite terminal including the security measures.
She said Starlite will soon provide their own x-ray machine to check the baggage.
