Japanese TV show demonstrates "Laglag Bala"
Prepare to cringe.
(SPOT.ph) A Japanese TV show satirically demonstrated the “Laglag Bala” scheme being carried out at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), where Philippine airport personnel allegedly plant bullets in passengers’ luggage to extort money for their release. The said modus is earning worldwide infamy, with published reports from Time, Daily Mail, and a statement warning United Nations staff.

The video was posted on Facebook on November 5. You don’t even have to understand Nihonggo to recognize what the host was trying to say—a warning to Japanese people. In the video, the host explained that bullets are found upon screening of the baggage at the X-ray machine, then the personnel will open the bag to confirm the presence of contraband. The host then explains that once the bullet is found, the personnel (portrayed with a shushing gesture while asking for something) will ask for money from the victim to skip being delayed by questioning or detaining. The program also showed the wrapping of bags as one of the measures taken by passengers who are passing through NAIA.
WATCH: The Philippines may get mad at me, but this airport bullet planting scam deserves to be called out! [please like my facebook page Greta Van Susteren for updates on this story, share this post, and comment below the video]Posted by Greta Van Susteren on Wednesday, November 4, 2015
It doesn’t end there. Even FOX News’ anchor Greta Van Susteren has warned the world about the scheme. "Yes, I know what you're thinking, 'What is wrong with some people?' My answer: I just don't know," she said.
We've been asking the same question—and our government has the same answer.
