MANILA, Philippines — A team of agents from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) will go to Taiwan as part of its investigation following the fatal shooting of a Taiwanese fisherman off the coast of northern Philippines.

“The NBI team will do an inspection of the fishing vessel as well as conduct forensic and ballistic examinations,” Justice Secretary Leila De Lima said Thursday in a statement.

“We are hoping to get cooperation of witnesses and survivors in the probe regarding the fisherman’s death,” she added.

The Justice chief said the NBI’s investigation will determine what really happened and the possible liabilities on the side of the Philippines.

Philippine coastguards shot dead 65-year-old Hung Shih-Cheng last week after they said his vessel illegally sailed into Philippine waters.

The NBI, De Lima said will coordinate with the Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO).

    Mga kababayan, don’t worry to much about his whole incident. In a few weeks, everything will be business as usual. Remember the Chinese hostage crises in Manila? Remember how China was fuming mad. The best solution to this incident is not let the Taiwanese get too much air time. That doesn’t go to the root of the issue. Just the government showing to the Taiwanese population they are proactively doing something about this. Never mind that those fishermen ignored warnings from a legitimate law enforcement agency.

    I don’t like how Asia-Pacific is slowly evolving into a conflict zone. We should play on our comments strengths and use ASEAN. Look at what Europe did with the European Union.

    Chinese Men’s Penis Size Adequate

    According to a Hong Kong study, Chinese men shouldn’t feel inferior about the size of their penises. The study showed that Chinese men measured up to others elsewhere in the world below the belt.

    “Our conclusion is that Hong Kong people are no smaller than western men, where their penises are concerned,” said Chan Lung-wai, who is director of the Urology Center at the Union Hospital, and who was in charge of the study.

    The study did not measure erect penises, and found that the average length of their soft penises was 8.46 centimeters (3.4 inches) compared to Germans at 8.6 centimeters, Israelis 8.3, Turks 7.8 and Filipinos 7.35. Italians had the longest.

    • Warren Kuo

      Mcay, you should just focus on measuring your penis and not publish your dirty mind here.

    lilipas din yan may pagka-abnoy lang yang mga taiwan gov e, pati pa naman yan pinatulan pa ni de lima. di ba halos 2 years ago nun may mga druglord na nahuli dito sa pinas e pinadeport sa china tapos nagwala din yang mga taiwanese. ganyan din ang sabi ihohold nila mga hiring ng pinoy, muntik pa hindi natuloy yung kapatid ko dun, pero lumipas din nawala na yung isyu. kaya wag na lang sakyan kung hindi naman nila concern pati nbi pinapagala sa taiwan baka magsite seing lang din sila dun imbes na gawin ung trabaho nila dito.
