Despite repeated warnings against making bomb jokes in public, a woman from Caloocan City still went ahead and decided to clown around at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
“Just my friend’s trinkets. There’s also a bomb! Joke, joke, joke!” she said.
Due to this, the 27-year-old Ebata, who was bound for Haneda, Japan, was instead detained by the Aviation Security Unit National Capital Region.
She was charged for violating Presidential Decree 1727 or the Anti-Bomb Joke Law and faces imprisonment of up to five years and a P40,000 fine.
Last month, a cellphone technician was also apprehended after making a bomb joke at the Metro Rail Transit Line 3.
