/ 01:12 AM January 11, 2017

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has filed charges against three “fixers” who allegedly asked motorists and vehicle owners for cash to expedite transactions at the agency.

LTO chief Edgar Galvante on Tuesday said cases of estafa and violation of the antired tape law were filed in the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office filed against Rhoda Antonio after she allegedly demanded P20,000 from an operator to facilitate the processing and release of his van which was earlier apprehended for being colorum.

Meanwhile, Eleanor Manalili was sued for allegedly asking P2,300 from a driver who wanted to renew his license. The third to be sued was Dexter Laggui, who allegedly received P900 from another motorist who wanted to redeem his confiscated license.

Galvante said his agency had adopted a “mailed-fist policy” against fixers, saying they will be immediately arrested once they are found offering their services at any LTO office nationwide.
