Hilbay asks Duterte to show compassion to Filipino fishermen: This is about human beings, not about ships

President Duterte should show compassion towards Filipino fishermen whose vessel was hit by a Chinese vessel off Recto Bank last week.

This was the appeal made by former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay after the President downplayed the ramming of the Filipino boat as a little maritime incident that does not require going to war.

“Mr. President, what you dismiss as a ‘maritime incident’ or ‘banggaan lang ng barko’ almost cost the lives of FILIPINOS in PHILIPPINE WATERS. ‘Di ito tungkol lang sa barko, dagat, o isda. This is about human beings,” Hilbay tweeted.

“Ser, konting malasakit at awa naman para sa mga kababayan mo,” he added.
