Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said Thursday the Philippine Coast Guard will resume patrols around Scarborough Shoal, testing the waters even as its Chinese counterparts maintained a steady presence there. Tugade said he ordered the Coast Guard to Scarborough after reports said Filipino fishermen were able to fish without Chinese interference. “They will be there for roving inspection, testing the waters,” Tugade told reporters in a chance interview.
