A false bomb threat occurred this morning at Banco de la Nacion’s headquarters, located on Republica De Panama Ave. in San Isidro.
At around 11:15 am, the CEOs secretary received a phone call from a man who said he had explosives on the first, third and ninth floors of the building, Francisco Vivanco, Banco Nacional’s press officer, said to El Comercio.
The bank’s security evacuated the 1,500 workers on site, immediately.
The national police and the bomb explosives unit arrived on scene to examine the area for explosives. After a thorough search they determined there were no explosives, and declared the threat a false alarm.
Later, the staff was allowed to return to work.
This latest incident adds to the series of fake bomb threats that were reported in early September.
There were 5 bomb threats in one week.
One of the bomb threats, at Jorge Chavez Airport, was later discovered to have been committed by children.
