<quoted text> The Filipinos are going because Taiwan the province of mainland china is letting them go maybe they are not happy with them for some reason so they move on. I quit jobs that are too good to some but I did move on but whenever I left the door some doors were open. No one would improve their lives for keeping a toilet cleaners job and that is a fact no promotions no pay raises no security, why the Filipinos feel bad about losing jobs like that is beyond me.
Then why the workers are appealing for the hire ban to be lifted ASAP. They were let go because the contract expire, you are forever in denial just like your Aquino government. Read this article...

There should be no hard feelings between the OFW and the Taiwan employers but there is however attitude adjustment the Chinese have to make like staying within their borders and 200 mile EEZ as mandated by border and territorial laws. Without border laws then china might as well take all of India Vietnam and all of the world and this analogy is not for you cause you never get it it is for anyone who have law abiding sense.
Thank you. GPS record shows that the fisherman was gunned down within the 200 miles EEZ of Taiwan. Either way, killing an unarmed fisherman is a crime and an act of piracy.

So who is holding these 10,000 workers. Let them go home and replace them ...that's the right of your government. Hopefully, it is high time for President Aquino to focus on jobs for all Filipinos so they don't have to leave the country.
Ummm... you do know that Taiwan pays better right? You make more money in Taiwan than you ever can in Philippines. Its like Mexicans going to the US.

Yes, just formally apologise and persecute the murderer ok. Stop dragging territory dispute with PRC and fish into what is supposedly a murder case. Also, there is still a 2006 fisherman murder case by two PNP cops. Philippines institutions are just full of kidnappers and murderers.

The international community stand with the Taiwanese on this one, PCG perpetrators must be brought to justice. We are still waiting for Philippines to prosecute PCG.

If you have problem with PRC, take it elsewhere, this one is about cold blooded murder.

We are all watching the case and how Aquino deals with it. OFWs who still want their jobs care about it. Travel warning to Philippines from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, and EU countries are still in effect, advising their citizens to avoid Philippines. Philippines's reputation as a lawless and rogue state is notorious.

Taiwan's findings support PH Coast Guard Accounts...

"Local political play?

Taipei-based journalist J. Michael Cole, who reports on military issues in Northeast Asia and in the Taiwan Strait, believes that Taiwan's hardline stance can be blamed on local politicians' pressure on the unpopular President Ma Ying-jeou.

"In order to appease various domestic constituencies — including some outspoken members of the pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party — that were calling for a more muscular response to the incident, Ma ordered naval exercises near the waters where the Kuang Ta Hsing had come under fire," Cole said in an article published Tuesday by The Diplomat, an international current-affairs magazine in the Asia-Pacific region.

Cole, a former intelligence officer at the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, said Taipei should have accepted the Philippine apology and efforts to resolve the issue.

"Taipei allowed itself to be carried away by the domestic indignation," he said. "Given Ma's low popularity ratings, he would understandably seek to ride the wave of nationalism that, almost spontaneously, had taken over the whole of Taiwan."

Cole said Taiwan's mishandling of the crisis is the result of "local legislators’ political ambitions in fishermen’s constituencies, as well as by opposition parties’ efforts to criticize Ma no matter what he does, especially at a time when he is vulnerable."

"A lack of worldliness, of understanding Taiwan's position within the international community, and of how its actions will be interpreted abroad, better explain what happened," he added.- with a report from Agence France-Presse"

Taiwan coast guards saved Philippines fishermen found in Taiwan water.

http://www.tribune.net.ph/index.php/nation/it...

See the difference. If it was Taiwan fishermen, the PCG will not hesitate to kidnap them and ask for ransom, or even kill them.

Aquino is still trying to delay persecuting the PCG murderer.

PNP charged with murder and cover up.

http://news.asiaone.com/news/crime/philippine...

Philippines law enforcing institutions such as PCG and PNP are like criminals themselves, they commit murders and piracies and try to lie and cover up. This is another case out of many.

It will be a mammoth task for Aquino government to clean them up. Giving them weapons can only exacerbate the problem if the underlying corruption is not eradicate first.

Aquino, persecute the PCG murderer now.

When the Vietnamese people left Vietnam during the war, thousands fled by sea and hundreds were drifted for several months to the Philippine's territory. No one was kidnapped by the PCG but they were saved by fishermen and the Filipino people.

Only two policemen were involved...but not the whole PCG and PNP. Don't worry, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima is a tough lawyer who will not leave any stone unturned during the investigation.

Pinoys are friendly, they are welcomed to any.countries yo work to study, to overstay.
For those who overstay, they are simply banned to come to our country.
But for those who goes to there place. they simply shoot them and kill them. Apart from this Taiwanese case.
Also there was one about HK
There are tourist going to Manila but a Pinoy named Mendoza killed some of the tourists.
