At least 20 Filipino fishermen from Sarangani province have been reunited with their families over the weekend after they were repatriated to the country from three months of imprisonment in Indonesia for illegal fishing. Sarangani Gov. Steve Solon helped on the repatriation of the fishermen, who are residents of Malapatan town in Sarangani after Malapatan parish priest Fr. Ariel Destora sought the help of the provincial government to help in their repatriation. Destora said the fishermen have been held in detention in Tahuna, Indonesia for the last three months after they were caught poaching in Indonesian waters by the Indonesian navy.
