Security Guard to Face Charges From Ombudsman’s Office Due to His P280-M Bank Savings

The Office of the Ombudsman has been preparing to file a case against a security guard who has P280 million bank savings.

Security guards are employees hired by various business establishments or agencies to secure properties, wealth and individuals. They are usually tasked to implement peace and order under their area of jurisdiction.

Guards are instructed to perform their job properly and observe maximum tolerance at all times. They are also authorized to use their firearms to protect the area in charge of them. However, most security employees are only earning minimum wage, which is quite small to meet the ends.
