Palace junks MIASCOR’s appealPosted on by Editha Z. Caduaya
DAVAO CITY, Philippines — Malacañang junked MIASCOR’s appeal for reconsideration on the cancellation of their contract with the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA).
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque in a statement Sunday said “there is nothing to appeal” saying the “government has no existing contract with MIASCOR Ground handling Corporation.”
On Friday, January 19, MIAA General Manager Ed Monreal issued a 60-day notice to MIASCOR rescinding their lease and concession agreement as the service provider of MIAA and other airports citing the verbal order of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Duterte’s order stemmed form the pilferage incident involving a returning Overseas Filipino Worker who lost his “Pasalubong” in the hands of six MIASCOR employees at the Clark International Airport.
