The Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) raided a computer shop in Caloocan City on Thursday (July 23) for allegedly selling fake COVID-19 test results.
A video footage showed a woman preparing fake certificates of Rapid Anti-body test results at a computer shop in Barangay 177, Caloocan City. The CIDG said these fake certificates are sold for P500.
After receiving reports, authorities immediately set up an entrapment operation.
“May isang operatiba namin na nagpanggap na kukuha at nangangailangan ng rapid anti-body test. Ayun nga, sa halagang P500 hinintay-hintay niya ang resulta (One of our operatives posed as a customer in need of rapid anti-body test. So after paying P500 he waited for the results),” according to CIDG Deputy Director for Administration PBGen. Rhoderick Armamento.
Armamento reiterated producing fake test results poses great danger especially with the rising COVID-19 cases. He also said that suspects, Angelica Arino Dellola and Jeshel Roldan Mohad will be facing charges for violating Article 171 in relation to Article 17 of The Revised Penal Code and Republic Act 11332.
