Duty Free PH staff lauded for honesty

Manila, Philippines – Duty Free Philippines (DFP) Chief Operating Officer (COO) Vicente Pelagio A. Angala on Thursday commended a store attendant who returned a lost wallet containing USD 1,000.

An employee of DFP for three years, 31-year-old Ariel Dela Peña discovered the wallet on the floor near the entrance of the Duty Free Arrival Mall at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 last Monday.

Dela Peña then immediately went after the owner, who was identified as Alexis Aecuban Celeste, an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) from Iloilo City.

Angala personally thanked Dela Peña for his gesture and encouraged all employees to maintain an honest environment for shoppers.
