MANILA: Philippine authorities arrested a 22-year-old Malaysian on Monday night at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport here after they found 4.6kg of high-grade cocaine hidden in his luggage.

The suspect, Nasiruddin Mohd Hasnan is facing charges of violating the Philippines' republic act 1965 or its comprehensive dangerous drugs act 2002.

The airport's drug interdiction task group arrested Nasiruddin at about 7:30 pm Monday at the Naia Terminal 1.

Philippines Bureau of Immigration commissioner Jaime Morente said 216 pieces of high-grade cocaine in pellet form weighing 4.617.5kf were found hidden among chocolate bars inside a canister in his carry-on luggage.



Authorities had earlier received a tip from the US Drug Enforcement Agency about the arrival of a drug courier from Togo.

Immigration records showed that the suspect arrived via Ethiopian Airlines flight ET628 from Togo, where he stayed for a day. Prior to this, he flew from Kuala Lumpur to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia.

In Manila, authorities monitored his movements as soon as he presented himself at the immigration counter.

Morente said the drug interdiction task group decided to move in and arrest the Malaysian as it became apparent that no one would be picking him up.

"He did not have checked-in luggage and the task group decided to allow a controlled delivery to determine who will pick up the subject at the airport. At around 7:30 pm, the task group decided to move in and arrest him when it became apparent that no one will pick him up as he hailed a taxi," the BI commissioner said. – The Philippine Inquirer/Asia News Network
