Bohol Tour Operator Scandal
« on: March 21, 2010, 07:46:27 PM »
By the Bohol Chronicle

Some 120 students from a university in Calamba, Laguna were stranded at the city port after they were victimized by a "tour operator" who escorted them for a four-day Bohol educational tour.

The students from the Philippine Women's University (PWU) ended up their supposed to be learning experience with an unfortunate ordeal which they discovered only when they were billeted at JJs Seafood Village.

The 120 PWU students together with faculty members of the university's Hotel & Restaurant Management department were shocked to learn last Friday that their tour organizer was not able to pay their hotel and transportation expenses thereby preventing them to take a Weesam Express trip to Cebu.

Among the faculties were Jenel Magana, HRM coordinator; Susana Vanguardia, HCS coordinator; Fritz Callanta, dean for academic affairs; Jose Fernando Tabuzo, support services officer; Pedro Tandang, gen-ed instructor; Mernita Bandoy, OSA head and Betsaida De Ramos, school director.
         
The suspect identified as Luzminda M. Montelcaro, 46, a resident of Maryland Subdivision, San Pedro, Laguna, was arrested by the city police last Friday after the engaged establishments were not paid of their accounts.

According to Jun Caturza, owner of the place where the group was billeted, he was forced to block the departure of the group after learning that it was not only the board and lodging left unpaid but the tour and transportation bills incurred by the group.

Monteclaro who is now detained at the city police reportedly collected some P725,000 from the group at (P7,110 per student) for the Bohol educational trip.

The suspect's unsettled accounts included the one-way airfare (Cebu-Manila) via Zestair amounting to P250,000; P60,000 for Weesam Express, P60,000 for Harmony Resort, P49,500 for JJs Seafood Village, P15,000 for Dinorog Transit and almost P100,000 for Travel Village.

'RESCUE OPERATION"

The stranded students sent their representative to Gov. Erico Aumentado last Friday evening to seek assistance on how they could end the ordeal of staying for another night or two in the province.

The governor accommodated the students at the Governor's Mansion where they slept Friday evening.

While the fund mess will further be investigated by the court and the university administration, the governor requested late Friday evening the stranded students be accommodated on board "M/S San Paolo" of Negros Navigation which left direct to Manila past 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon.

You see now if this scandal would have been done by a foreigner it would be titled with the perpetrators country of origin I have seen it done that way.

Here the women who was arrested is a Filipina did it mention she was a Filipina? No, instead it sais she is a resident in a part of the Philippines.

Oh but if this was a foreigner it would be handled differently.

Naa sad ni...

Ngano moingon pa man nga Filipina when in fact Pinay man siya?  Do you know what redundant means? Are you really a journalist?  I guess you need to go back to school and study real journalism.  Public elementary school pupils have better understanding than you.  Also, they are better journalist than you are if that's how you interpret a news.

Or maybe mopapel lang jud ka since naay niadopt nimo nga media people just because you have a different color or for whatever reasons they have?

Common, grow up!
hangtud dili maundang ang pagpanaugdaug ug pagtamak sa katungod sa atong mga ultimong mamumuo, dili mapakgang ang reklamo batok sa pagpanaugdaug nga kapitalista ug abusadong naglingkod sa atong gobyerno! unsa pa man inyong gipaabot?

it can really tarnish the name of bohol. what's sickening is that the suspect is not even from bohol but from laguna. what's not clear is that the article failed to mention what was the name of the tour agency does the suspect represented. at least the public know on whom they are going to check when it comes to having tours within the province. this is incident is embarassing to think that the victims were from PWU, one of the known university here in our country.

bol-anon, that is another good point. There has been so much happening here these days it literally makes one head spin!

I am living here where as many persons in this forum are in outer areas away from here. Most often it is buried if something had gone wrong with a tourism activity.

One time  a friend of mine who was the tourism chief in Philippines let me in on some very breaking incidents that had happened with several foreigner deaths happening in one weekend all in Panglao. He told me it could be written about but his name could not be mentioned as the provider of the information.

On that particular weekend  I was told that a Korean drowned in Bohol Divers swimming pool, then a Japanese women had rental tanks for diving and was rented out faulty apparatus system and she drowned in the middle of her dive here.

Another incident involved a Chinese Filipino man who had suffered a heart attack at a resort.

Another incident kept silent for a while was a group of Japanese tourist who had arranged a tourist deal coming to Bohol were all held up and lost all types of electronic and jewelery valued at quit a bit.

I was the first one to write about it but later the editor at the time made it into his own front page banner and I was the one who had done the interview and provided the documents on all these things that happened, mentioned up above.

Bambi ....Please refrain from bad usage of words. She may be a Filipina skin and body but who knows she could be a citizen from any country as people need not be born or have the native blood to be a citizen.... and stop being so knave you know as well as I do that foreigners who commit crime here are treated way more different....But we are not onion skinned about it when we hear about such things.

Things happen by all types of persons so we all have to deal with it whether we like it or not.

jellybean, you said that it's your friend who was the tourism chief of the philippines the one who provided you those secret information. when you say chief that means the tourism secretary, right? then you used the word was therefore your friend is a former department of tourism secretary therefore we can't say it's ace durano because he's the current secretary. who among the previous 10 is your friend?

BOL-aonon,

Thanks for the curiousity regarding the PROVINCAIL TOURISM POLICE CHIEF.

He was stationed in Panglao and is now taking on another position at Camp Dagohoy.

Ace Durano is tourism secretary of Philippines exacto jyud.

I think if anyone ever wanted to ask him how much foreigner dollars have helped out here in the Philippines should ask this guy, regardless if your an OFW making money abroad or marreid to a foreigner over seas or a tourist the foreigners have helped this country with overseas dollars for a long time paranoid as they maybe or not!
