Pinoys able to fish freely, undisturbed
MetadataShow full item record
Fisherman Gilbert Baoya came home yesterday from a fishing trip to Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal off Zambales province with a substantial catch. Baoya and seven companions were able to drop nets at Panatag Shoal “freely and undisturbed” by the Chinese, who used to chase them away from the area. He said they attempted to fish in the area on Oct. 24 but were rudely turned away by Chinese coast guards. They tried their luck the following day and got a pleasant surprise when no Chinese came to harass them or ask them to go away.
