Filipinos working in China will suffer if the Philippine government fails to bring to justice those behind the recent killing of a Chinese national in Las Piñas City, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro “Teddyboy” Locsin Jr. warned Monday (August 13).

In a series of tweets, Locsin urged the Philippine government to quickly resolve the killing of 27-year-old Yang Kang.

“IT makes no difference if a Chinese national is the killer. FAILURE TO BRING THE KILLER TO JUSTICE—like failure to off the cops who kidnapped a Korean, strangled & cremated him, flushed his ashes in a PNP toilet then demanded ransom from unwitting widow is sign of failed state,” he said.

Locsin said the government should allow China to send its own investigators to the country to investigate the killing in accordance with international practice.

“When a foreign national is killed on our soil, we are obliged to allow the foreign national’s state to send its own investigators to solve the crime we seem unable to. That is international practice,” he said.

Locsin said he agrees with the Chinese Embassy in Manila’s call to resolve Yang’s killing immediately.

“ONE HUNDRED PERCENT AGREE WITH CHINA ON THIS ONE. We go down this road of letting Chinese nationals be hurt, our people in China will pay. Send carping yellows to China when the anti-Filipino riots start to take the sacrificial place of our people working at good jobs there,” he said.

Police said Yang jumped from the sixth floor of a building on August 9 to escape his employer. He was found dead wearing handcuffs.

Based on government data, there are more than 12,000 Filipino workers in mainland China.

Malacañang said an investigation is ongoing regarding the incident.
