    tingnan ninyo kung kaano na kalapit (lok at the map) ang Scarborough Shoal sa Pilipinas…..nakaktakot.

    Harsher punishment for foreign nationals violating PH laws.

      why protect PH nationals violating foreign laws but punish foreign nationals violating PH laws? sooo unfair! unfair! unfair!

      • Mazza02

        Because most of those Philippine nationals that violated laws abroad did so under duress like the kidnapped drug mules. However some people with fake Philippine citizenship don’t deserved to be helped such as the illegal chinese TNT in Europe and US pretending to be Filipino.

  • Cano Manuel

    Ibitay doon sa Kalayaan Group of Islands. Kapag nakawala pa yan, ang mga pulis ang bitayin.
