Chinese Vessel Sinks Philippine Boat In West PH Sea, Abandons 22 Pinoy Fishermen
CHINESE – A Chinese ship hit the Filipino boat and sailed away without helping the 22 Filipino fishermen.
It is claimed by several Asian countries namely Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Brunei, Philippines and People’s Republic of China.
In a previous article, a Chinese media named He Jia accidentally declared that the Philippines is part of China’s territory on air.
“We all know that the Philippines is China’s inherent territory and the Philippines belongs to Chinese sovereignty, this is an indisputable fact,” she said.
Now, China’s military vessels are roaming around the West Philippine Sea. In 2018, Chinese coast guards drove Pinoy reporters and fishermen away from the disputed Scarborough Shoal.
Filipino fishermen preferred fishing in that area because it has plenty of good fish. They dubbed it as ‘Fishermen’s Heaven.’
Based on a report, there was an unfortunate incident that happened to a Filipino fishing boat F/B Gimver 1 on Sunday at the Reed Bank in the West Philippine Sea.
A sea vessel owned by China allegedly hit the Pinoy fishing boat and sailed away without helping the fishermen.
According to the report, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana expressed his anger towards the Chinese who abandoned the Filipino fishermen.
Fortunately, Vietnamese fishermen later arrived to rescue the Filipino who are floundering in the water.
“We denounce the actions of the Chinese fishing vessel for immediately leaving the incident scene and abandoning the 22 crewmen to the mercy of the elements. The F/B Gimver 1 was anchored at the time when it was hit by the Chinese fishing vessel,” said Lorenzana.
Based on the report, other details of the West Philippine Sea incident were not yet available.
We can all hope that the issue on the disputed waters will be over soon.
