Fishermen hope to be ‘freely, totally’ allowed in Panatag
MetadataShow full item record
Raring to go back to Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal without the Chinese Coast Guard shooing them away, fisherfolk from this province are hoping President Duterte’s pronouncement that Filipinos could soon fish again in the disputed waters is for real. Charlito Maniago, barangay captain of Cato village in Infanta town, said the residents who mostly subsist on fishing are “happy but not yet contented” with the President’s announcement. Maniago related to The STAR yesterday that fishermen in his village are particularly concerned about being allowed “freely and totally” in Panatag Shoal, also called Bajo de Masinloc, which is guarded by the Chinese Coast Guard.
