NBI starts questioning of 3 Taiwanese boat fishing crew members

PINGTUNG COUNTY, Taiwan—Done just like court proceedings, the team of the National Bureau of Investigation questioned the three fishing crew members from Taiwan, who witnessed how Philippine Coast Guard members fired on their boat, killing a Taiwanese fisherman off Balitang island in northern Philippines last May 9.

The inquiry is presided over by the Pintung County Chief Prosecutor Choi Zong Zong (pronounced as long long).

Based on accounts of an informant who had access to investigation room 7 of the county justice hall where the probe was being conducted, the NBI team was seated near the door facing Choi, who was seated in an elevated area, just like court judges.


In the middle of the room was  the family of the victim.


To the left were Taiwanese prosecutors, while to the right were lawyers of the crew.

The questioning started at past 2 p.m. and no time was given on when it would end.
