A mother-and-daughter duo was apprehended on arrival on midnight of Thursday, September 28, at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3, after Bureau of Customs officials found "cocaine" in their luggage.
Atty. Yasmin Mapa, NAIA Customs District Collector, identified the foreigners who flew in via Qatas Airlines flight QR 928 from Doha, as Siti Aishan Binte Wang, 64, Singaporean national, and her daughter, Nur Alaviyah Binti Hanaffe, 39. years old , also born in Singapore.
The Airport anti-drugs operatives of Customs bureau, the Philippine National Police and other NAIA authorities are conducting investigation.
In a report to Mapa, the NAIA Customs examiner was suspicious of the contents of the duo's hand-carried green trolley bag and blue/green duffle bag. On inspection, found there were illegal drugs placed in a capsule inside biscuit canister boxes.
These were estimated by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and the NAIA Inter-Agency Drug Interdiction Task Group (PDEA-IADITG) to be worth no less than P76 million.
The drugs are now under custody of PDEA for proper investigation and filing a case against the suspect.
