Alejano seeks clearance from Coast Guard to visit Scarborough


MANILA, Philippines — Opposition senatorial candidate Gary Alejano has formally asked the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) to give the Otso Diretso slate a clearance to visit the Scarborough Shoal a week after they were allegedly blocked from going in the area. The Magdalo party-list representative showed a copy of his letter to PCG commandant Admiral Elson Hermogino during a press conference in Quezon City on Monday. ADVERTISEMENT“Sir, the PCA ruling in 2016 clearly stated that the Scarborough Shoal is a traditional fishing ground of Filipino and Chinese fishermen, hence, both of our fishermen can fish there. Alejano also said the fishermen who would assist them in their trip should be absolved from any liability. /jeADVERTISEMENTREAD: PH wins arbitration case over South China SeaRead NextLATEST STORIESMOST READ
