NAIA taxi driver charges passenger P300 per kilometer

MANILA, Philippines — The January 27 Facebook post of a certain Ralph Lopez has gone viral.

In the post, Lopez complained about a taxi driver of Bernadelle Taxi with plate number 629, that he took at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Lopez recounted having a heated argument with the driver who was charging him P300 for every kilometer.

The victim couldn’t cry for help as the doors and windows of the cab were on child-lock.

To get out of his predicament, Lopez had to ask the driver to look for an ATM along Jupiter Street in Makati so he could withdraw money for the fare.

When they reached the bank, Lopez took the chance and immediately escaped.

Several days after the victim sought help from authorities, the suspect was identified as 36-year old Victorino Duldulao.

Duldulao was arrested on Wednesday by the airport police while on standby at the NAIA Terminal 3.

He is now facing charges of resistance and disobedience to lawful order, concealing true name and direct assault upon a person in authority.

Duldulao was also found to be using fake franchise, and is also believed to be a member of the so-called “kambal-plaka” gang.

The suspect did not deny the allegations and even admitted that their group has been conducting the said modus operandi for a year now.

In line with this, Manila International Airport Authority created a task force to capture abusive taxi drivers that harass passengers at NAIA.

Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) have warned anew of holding responsible abusive taxi drivers accountable. — Joan Nano | UNTV News and Rescue
