Statement of Sen. Francis Pangilinan on China's not a hit-and-run
Their version of the events is as fake as their territorial claims: Kiko

China's version of the events is as fake as its territorial claims.

Between a press release and the narrative of our Filipino fishermen, there is no question who is the "besieged" victim telling the truth.

We hope our government is of the same mind, and will side with truth and our people.

It's enraging, even as it is ironic, that China continues to find a route to escape liability for our Filipino fishermen's near-death experience at sea. By this continued posturing, it is not showing the good faith of a so-called friend.

We need genuine leadership. Now is the time to stand up and speak out for our people. Now is the time to show real grit and toughness. There is never a time to be meek and submissive before a foreign power that endangers our own people.
