The government should not only file a formal protest but also “demand accountability and compensation” from China for the grounding of a Chinese vessel at Tubbataha Reef in the Sulu Sea, the militant umbrella group Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) said Tuesday.


Bayan secretary general Renato Reyes called the second Tubbataha Reef grounding incident in three months a “cause for alarm.”


In a text message to the INQUIRER, he said they “can’t help but notice though that Philippine authorities were able to apprehend the Chinese crew of the vessel but the same was not done to the crew of the USS Guardian in January.”


“The crew of the US Navy minesweeper should have been investigated in the same way the Philippine Coast Guard is investigating the Chinese crew now,” Reyes added.

    “can’t help but notice though that Philippine authorities were able to
    apprehend the Chinese crew of the vessel but the same was not done to
    the crew of the USS Guardian in January.”

    Any discerning reader can answer this without additional contemplation. Does Renato Reyes need further explanation?

    Reyes ought to DISTINGUISH the difference between the Chinese Poachers and the US Crew … !
    One is a friend, COOPERATING with us and WILLING to PAY for the Damages !
    The other is a THIEF and ENEMY willing to ESCAPE and RUN AWAY or SHOOT Back with all the guns they’ve got, just to ESCAPE !
    So, ARREST was CORRECT, NO BAIL, NO FREEDOM until they get JAIL TERMS and HEAVY PENALTY !
    Jail Reyes too, for INSULTING the Filipinos and Americans !

  • dikoy321

    The US even turned-in to PH probers all the navigational charts and ship’s logbook, COOPERATING FULLY with us !
    Hang Reyes in front of the Chinese Embassy, until he starts to SEE the light !

    China wants to claim Tubbataha reef as part of territories, so that’s why they are staking their boats on it.
    As for Bayan, ignore them, they are just lackeys of the imperialist Communist China. Do you don’t see them protesting against Chinese expansionism and land grabbing?
