Leila wants Senate inquiry on harassment of fishermen
Sen. Leila de Lima wants a Senate inquiry into the harassment of Filipino fishermen by members of the Chinese coast guard at the Panatag Shoal. De Lima said there is a need for the administration to enforce mechanisms that would promote sustainable fishing at Panatag and improve the plight of local fishermen who go there. “The administration should champion the economic situation of our fisherfolk by standing up for their losses, enforcing mechanisms that boost their profit and promote sustainable fishing in the disputed area,” De Lima said in Senate Resolution 766.
