PH Navy keeps tight watch on Sulu Sea due to Sabah standoff


MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine Navy has intensified its watch on the Sulu Sea amid the standoff between Malaysian Security Forces and armed followers of the Sultan of Sulu in Sabah.

Lieutenant Commander Gregory Fabic, in an interview over Radyo Inquirer Friday, said aside from the six naval vessels and a Philippine Navy Islander aircraft, additional vessels from the Philippine Coast Guard have been sent to the area.

“Kami po ay nagko-conduct ng maritime security patrol. Ito po ang instruction sa amin para walang makapasok at makalabas, other than human trafficking pati na rin naval blockade,” Fabic said.

“Ito po ay para maiwasan na mag-escalate ang issue sa Sabah,” he added.

Fabic said the Navy’s maritime patrol began on Feb. 12, a day after the standoff began.

    Philippine leader Aquino criticises gunmen in Malaysia STRAIT TIMES OF Singapore one blogger “ topolcats” says:  Give those Filipino criminals an ultimatum……..after such and such a date we will arrest you by force!If they have not surrendered by a certain date and disarmed, then our security forces will attack with lethal force! That is a normal way to act. Russia would have done that and attacked on cue……..there is no point in talking to Filipino terrorists backed secretly by the Philippine Gov!….just look at the Philippines press and all its comments about taking back Sabah.That BS is all Government sanctioned.

       The guy must be an Indonesian, he’s got too much post in Pravda which is a Russian news site.

      Indonesians had some issues in Malaysia’ Sarawak in the past and they would not cry if Malaysia get’s tangled in an insurgent problem right into its bread and butter.

    The malaysians has been supplying and supporting the insurrection in Southern Philippines. Now, you are getting a dose of your own medicine. Support the Sultanate of Sulu. It is time to reclaim what is legally ours.

    Are you serious, you want that our brothers will be massacred cold blooded by the Malaysians. They are the rightful owner and the claim had been overdue for many years. Look to the rental the Malaysians are paying, what is 7K Malaysian dollars to this time.
