Dr. Harvey Balucating and Salvador Dimson III were cornered at an apartelle in Barangay Balibago in Angeles City around 2 p.m., Pampanga police director Col. Arnold Thomas Ibay told the Inquirer.

Balucating and Dimson managed to get out of the airport on the pretext of heading to the Lubao quarantine center in Barangay Sta. Catalina.

Their acceptance letter was supposedly signed by the municipal health office through Dr. Eugene Raymund Nicdao, according to an Inquirer source at the Bureau of Quarantine.

Ibay said the two men violated Republic Act No. 11332, or the mandatory reporting of notifiable diseases and falsification of public documents.

Balucating also claimed to have been vaccinated in the Philippines.

The two did not go through the Balik Pampanga program for overseas Filipino workers and traveling Filipinos, according to Pampanga Gov. Dennis Pineda. INQ
