Cops nab Chinese, 6 others in Paracale mining

PARACALE, Camarines Norte, Philippines—Police in two separate operations arrested a Chinese national and six small-scale miners for illegal mining in Labo town here on Friday.

Supt. Efren Tublan, Labo police chief, said Xiao Li, 38, was working in Sitio Naboogan, Barangay Daguit, when arrested past 7 a.m.

Tublan said six others—Erick Espinida, 22; Henry Nidea, 34; Henry Ferrer, 52; Eddie Lola, 45; Ruel Nidea, 22; and Rocky Villanuieva, 32—were arrested in Sitio Maligaya, Barangay Palanas, on the same day. They were working in a pit owned by a certain Victor Demin.

Recovered from the illegal miners were a dynamo, hose, compressor and a sack of iron ore.

The arrests came as authorities continue to search for the bodies of three miners who died after a blasting accident led to the flooding of at least seven pits in the town.

    Binababoy ng mga kalahi ni AFPako ang ating kalikasan. Malamang binabarat ang ating mga kababayan sa kababoyan. D kaya ng Filipino to na gawin sa Bayan ng mga singkit kaya dito kaliwat kanan sila sa paghahasik ng kasamaan. Mula sa Shabu hanggang sa pa mimina. Mga walang hiyang Lahi sa MUNDO.

    • DakuAkongUtin

      Basta dugong kayumangmang walang hesitation yan kung sisira sa kanilang kalikasan. Pati asawa, anak o anak anakan ay binagbinta sa mga labas gaya sa mga sex tourists na hapones at mga karumaldumal na puting silahis at perverts.  Basta lang maka kain ng isang araw, okey na sa kanila. Basta ang kustomer nila puti , parang Dios ang tingin.  Dios Ko Santisima, magdadasal na kayo sa ating sariling Santo Calungsod. huwag na yang mga imported na mga santos at santas.

        6 years old student nagtanong sa Kalburo party member bakit lahat nga pagkain sa China may Lason. Di makasagot ang Chairman ng kalburo Communist party. Kasi Ga go, katulad ni AFPako na ugok.

        Ngayon dito nagkalat sa Pilipinas binobola ang ating mga kababayan. D kaya gawin Pinoy yan sa ibang bansa. Pero itong kalahi ni AFPako na ugok nagkakalat dito. Sana ilibing ng buhay yan.

    Even in Africa many Chinese ventures their style of destruction. Chinese government give financial award those who are willing to dare small mining in Africa and sent back to China every Gold they earned. In Philippines a lot of Chinese most of them are notorious in China are engaged in Mining. So Sad why Philippine government allowed this?

    If we are really serious in defending our sovereignty, we should help ourselves by building up the national treasury by being in full control of our resources and by exercising the power of the state to collect duties and taxes especially from activities that directly or indirectly involve a country that has constantly threatened our national security.  We must walk the talk because everyone is looking at what we do about the country’s situation.

    Kill the Chinese and just jail the Filipinos.
