Perez, a former governor of the Board of Investments and a daughter of the late Speaker Eugenio Perez, said she had been hearing explosions day and night since Sept. 4. “My house shakes whenever there is an explosion,” she said by telephone. On a sheet of paper, she wrote down the time and day of the explosions: as early as 1 a.m. and as late as midnight, every day, from Sept. 4 to Sept. 19. Lt. Senior Grade Alexander Corpuz, Pangasinan PCG station commander, said the PCG personnel had responded to Perez’s reports but when his men went to the area, the illegal fishers were gone.
