MANILA, Philippines — A woman who claimed to be a relative of Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano was arrested in a sting Thursday night after she reportedly tried to extort money from a Jordanian man. 

Kaye Luis Cayetano was apprehended in front of Paco Church after receiving P7,600 from Lycel Albandonido at around 7:30 p.m.

The arrest stemmed from a complaint by Albandonido, who works for a Jordanian who recruits Filipinos to work in the Middle East. 

Cayetano reportedly introduced herself as a relative of the foreign affairs chief and claimed to be able to facilitate the processing of workers’ passports for a price.

Charges of robbery extortion were filed against Cayetano.
