'Drive out tambay in SCS, not those in the streets'
MetadataShow full item record
Sen. Risa Hontiveros yesterday challenged President Duterte to drive out Chinese occupants in Panatag or Scarborough Shoal before apprehending the tambays in the streets. “That’s the problem with President Duterte – he’s only tough on the poor, the jobless, and defenseless bystanders, but he crumples under China who have been forever loitering in Panatag Shoal,” Hontiveros said. Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said the Chinese and Filipinos share privileges over Panatag as they “co-control” the area. “I believe, at this point in time, we have ‘co-control’ with them (Chinese) because we can go there freely,” Cayetano told reporters on Monday during the anniversary celebration of the Department of Foreign Affairs.
