PH fishers recount ordeal near shoal
MetadataShow full item record
Foreign journalists on Saturday documented firsthand accounts of Filipino fishermen who operate near the disputed Bajo de Masinloc, also known as the Scarborough or Panatag Shoal, in the West Philippine Sea. “It felt like we were up against a Chinese warship,” said fisherman Viany Mula, 43, who narrated his experience of aggression by the Chinese Coast Guard patrolling the shoal. Mula talked with 15 journalists, who are fellows under the Hawaii-based East-West Center’s (EWC) Jefferson fellowship program and are here to study territorial disputes.
