Palace disputes fishermen's group claims
MetadataShow full item record
The Palace on Monday vowed to look into reports of Filipino fishermen that Chinese boats were hindering them from fishing in some parts of the West Philippine Sea which lie within the country’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ). This came in response to the appeal of Bigkis ng Mangingisda — a newly-formed group of hundreds of fishermen from the provinces of Zambales, Bataan, and Pangasinan — to President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration to assert the country’s rights to fish within EEZ.
