On Tuesday, Hamilton Abdul with his father went to the Office of Transportation Security (OTS) head executive assistant Napoleon Cuaton.

According to Cuaton, Abdul won’t pursue charges against Bertiz for fear that the ACTS-OFW party-list representative might get back at him.

Cuaton also added that they cannot force Abdul to file charges against the congressman and assures that OTS is always there to assist him.

Bertiz drew flak online after disobeying security protocol and harassing and confiscating the security ID of Abdul at NAIA terminal 2.

The House of Representatives with 159 votes reprimanded Bertiz over the incident.
