Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo on Tuesday said it was impossible for the Filipino fishermen to besiege the Chinese vessel when the latter was the one who hit them on June 9. “First of all, how can that be?…Eh nabangga nga eh, nabangga at kumalat na nga, iyong mga Filipino fishermen nakakapit na nga doon sa almost submerged boat,” Panelo said.
