Suspected British national terrorist, wanted Mongolian woman blocked at NAIA

Bureau of Immigration (BI) officials at Terminal 3 blocked an unnamed 51-year-old British national from UK (United Kingdom) from entering the country for his alleged connection with the international terrorist group.

According to Immigration Port Operations Division Chief Grifton Medina, based on intelligence information from their foreign counterparts, the British national is known to be involved in some terrorist activity. He has been included in their alert list.

Meanwhile, Immigration in also blocked a Mongolian woman who was discovered wanted for assaulting his husband.

According to Medina, the 33-year-old Unurjargal Altantsetseg first landed at Mactan Cebu International Airport from Incheon, South Korea.

Medina said the Mongolian was included in Interpol’s red notice in April 2019 for an assault and maltreatment case in Ulan Bator, Mongolia, for injuring her husband, who went blind and sustained severe physical injuries.

The suspected British national terrorist and the wanted Mongolian woman were immediately boarded to the first available flight back to their home country.

Cubao to Makati commute in 5 minutes still possible says, Villar

Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said Cubao, City to Makati commute in 5 minutes is still possible this 2020 via Edsa or another route.

“Let’s not focus on the small details. What’s important is during the term of the President, we will decongest Edsa, and five minutes from Cubao to Makati is possible, and we will do it,” said Villar said during Malacañang press briefing.

The DPWH Secretary said traffic on Edsa continues to improve as road and bridge projects were in progress.

Two significant projects would reduce traffics by 20 to 30 percent once the end of June 2020 completed them.

The Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 and the NLEx Harbor Link R10 Extension could cater to up to 130,000 vehicles. It would reduce the 400,000 cars that congest Edsa daily.
