MANILA, Philippines—Police authorities are investigating the possible involvement of laid off personnel in the bomb scare that shut down for several minutes a call center company in Quezon City before dawn Thursday.

Senior Police Officer 2 Joselito Fernandez of Quezon City police’sExplosive and Ordnance Division said the Expert Global Solution on Aurora Boulevard in Quezon City received the threat through the company’s corporate email account at 2:25 a.m.


The email called on to “power tripper” managers and bosses of the company to check all divisions because they left a bomb inside a yellow plastic bag that is set to explode “in few minutes.”

It also said: “Magsisi kayo sa mga kahayupan niyo sa mga empleyado niyo (You will regret your callousness to your employees).”


When bomb experts checked the area, yellow plastic bags were found, but they contained no bomb but food.

EOD declared the area safe at 3:23 a.m.

Fernandez said that it was later found that the company has been firing employees almost every week.

Fernandez quoted Rowie Lopez, the operations manager, as saying that they already have suspects, but didn’t say who they were.

Lopez also said it was the first time that the company received a bomb threat.
