OTS probes viral video of screeners filming departing Korean passengers at NAIA

Office for Transportation Security (OTS)

THE Office for Transportation Security (OTS) said it is conducting an investigation into the viral video circulating on social media which shows airport Security Screening Officers allegedly exhibiting unprofessional behavior through the unwarranted filming during the conduct of security screening procedures on a group of departing Korean artists at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

In a statement, the OTS said that the management is currently investigating the matter to determine the extent of violation committed based on existing rules and security screening protocols if any.

The OTS also vowed to impose appropriate administrative sanctions, should it be necessary.

“Rest assured that the OTS shall never tolerate any unprofessional behavior towards the riding public,” the OTS added.

“While we understand the excitement brought about by the presence of these Korean artists, we remind not only our personnel, but all airport users, that unauthorized filming at our security screening checkpoints is not allowed as a matter of policy,” the OTS said.
