WATCH: NAIA employee demonstrates how tanim-bala is done

An airport employee approached the media to confirm the tanim-bala scam at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and demonstrate how it is done.

The whistleblower, a former security officer at NAIA who asked to be identified only as Manuel, said he came out because he pity those who are being victimized by the bullet scam.

Manuel claimed he witnessed his colleagues plant bullets in some bags at the airport and said low salary is the reason they extort money.

In the following video, the whistleblower demonstrates how the bullets are planted.

May lumantad ng NAIA security officer, inilaglag nya na yung mga kupal nyang kasamahan na nagtatanim ng bala. Mababa daw ang sahod kaya nila ginagawa ito. Aba tangina sir, mam palitan na lang kaya kayo ng mga tambay sa kanto baka mas magampanan pa nila ng matapat ang inyong trabaho. Mga hayop!News Video (c) ANC ABS-CBN

Manuel also said the extorted money range from P1,000 to P30,000 to as much as P50,000 and the one who undertakes the racket gets the bigger cut.

The screening officer gets P3,000 while investigators get a bigger share, he added.
