Previously, a Garuda Indonesia passenger, who wished to remain anonymous, said on May 12 that his suitcase had been stolen while he was waiting at the airport’s Terminal 3 baggage reclaim area. The incident took place at around 7 p.m. when he arrived from Bali.

“Of the three suitcases I had, I could only find one of them. I reported it to the airport’s baggage service but they also failed to find my suitcases,” the passenger said in a statement. (vla)
