Gov't to pursue reef compensation
MetadataShow full item record
Malacañang is committed to pursuing compensation for the damage caused by a US Navy ship that ran aground last year at Tubbataha Reef, a United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Site. The US government continues to withhold payment of the P58-million ($1.3 million) fine imposed by the Philippines for the grounding of the minesweeper USS Guardian in the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park that destroyed a large part of the marine reservation.
