Uneducated person will most probably think of such actions. Philippine government, as well as Taiwan government is doing its duty to know what actually happened. At the end, the true sinner will be given right sanctions. Ultimately, justice will prevail.

Meanwhile, giving unnecessary sanctions to Philippine people by the Taiwan's govt will not definitely solve the issue, but just escalate it. If that one filipino who fired at their so called "innocent" fisherman is found guilty, does it mean all Filipino working in Taiwan for their living need to suffer? What kind of thinking was that...

That is just to satisfy your own greedy and you think you can do it with the backing of USA. As a result, you blatantly violate your own and international laws! Yet you claim that you are peaceful and want to settle disputes by law.
You attacked PRC first, then Sabah, Malaysia, and now Taiwan!
Who is next in your list!!!
All things you said boils down to speculations. Remember, every country has their "due process" in solving such cases -- totally not involving maritime dispute. If you consider, as well as your govt consider it as an isolated case of murder, then please prove it first with legal evidences... DO NOT make a move that would just worsen the problem... would just escalate the maritime issues... Please please dont aggrevate the issue. As i may say, the Philippine already set aside their pride to apologize for what happened just to protect their people.
Media is also aggrevating the issue: some filipinos in Taiwan were treated like a murderer. What kind of thinking is that?

The boat is within the 200-nm EEZ in Bashi Strait allowed by United Nations' UNCLOS.
What makes it justifiable to fire over a hundred shots on to an unarmed fishing boat? Your shooting lasted for a hour while you chased this small fishing boat. Your intention is to shoot to kill.
In March 2013, hundreds of heavily armed Pinoy militiamen got into Sabah, Malaysia to take Sabah. They killed many policemen and 20 innocent villagers. They cut off the limbs of some of the victims and gouged their eyes. YOU ARE BARBARIC!!!
Who are more violent and evil in these cases? Taiwan fishermen and Sabahan victims, or Filipinos? Which country is trying to take someone's territories by violent methods? Isn't it the Philippines?
SHAMELESS FILIPINOS, PLEASE DO NOT PRETEND TO BE VICTIMS. YOU ARE THE VIOLENT AGGRESSORS WHO CREATED SUCH TRAGEDIES. YOU ARE THE ONES WHO VIOLATED UNCLOS.
ON THE OTHER HAND, WHEN ACQUINO REFUSES TO ARREST THE MASTERMIND OF SABAH TERRORIST ATTACK, YOU ARE IN FACT VIOLATING INTERNATIONAL AGREEEMENTS AMONG COUNTRIES TO COMBAT TERRORISM.
YOU SHOULD FEEL ASHAMED OF YOUR OWN BEHAVIOR IN HARBOURING TERRORISM TO SATISFY YOUR OWN GREED!
YET YOU PINOYS TWISTED THE FACT, AND TRY TO PORTRAY YOURSELVES AS VICTIMS. YOU LIE ALL THE TIME. BUT YOUR GLOBAL MALICIOUS DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGNS ARE FALLING APART.
THE WORLD BY NOW KNOW YOU ARE LYING!!!

The killing of TW fisherman happened so recently and the damaged fishing boat still exists as evidence.

52-bullet holes were found on that small boat. What justifies anyone firing that many heavy machine gunshots at a small wooden unarmed boat? That is shoot to kill behavior. Vicious isn't it?

After the shooting, the Philippine coast guard ship left the crime scene immediately without offering help.(The injured was left to die, and they were 164 nautical miles away from Taiwan coast. Let me tell you that the Taiwan govt and the ship have navigation and GPS records.)

Is this speculation?

You talked cunningly like many of your fellow countrymen as usual.

How about the terrorist killing in Sabah, Malaysia in March this year, launched by some heavily armed Pinoys? Do we have evidence for that? You can ask the Malaysia government and court (the captured Pinoy terrorists were on trial now).

How the Hong Kong tourists were killed in Manila just a few years ago? How the victims and their familes were handled during and after the shooting by your government? How did the Philippines officials play the Hong Kong Police investigation team (who were issued visa by your govt) around when they arrived at the crime scene?(You can check the news media and ask the government of Hong Kong.)

Did Pinoys people show the proper humanitarian behavior in this tragedy?

I hope you can tell me that everything on the media and from the surviving victims are all SPECULATIVE! I want a sincere comment from your heart!

The world is still beautiful and many people are not evil!?

I totally understand where are you rooting from. But, we must consider the fact that the 52 bullets does not show a clear evidence of the intention of the coast guard officers. Many factors can trigger him to do such action. Let us leave the issue to the investigators themselves.

Previous killing done by "other" Filipino people is not merely reflecting the present issue. Let us not lead ourselves to different issues. Lacks of security in Philippines, as i may say, is an isolated issue with respect to it.

One more thing, please do not generalize everything. One or a group of filipino who did "non-humanitarian" act does not necessarily reflect the people of the Philippines. So, what must be the primary reason of discrimination towards OFWs in Taiwan? One incident involves batting of an innocent filipino by some angry Taiwanese. Is that "humanitarian" are you talking about?

Johnny, better offer some evidence for your "20 killed" instead of unsupported claims.

Knowing the Taiwanese, if that really happened, Philippines would have been obliterated by now.

How come that has not taken place?

Not the first time that they did this!
The Philippines has shot dead Taiwanese fishermen in the disputed waters repeatedly. At 20 dead and many severely injured in the last 10 years.
In 2006, a Taiwanese fishing boat based in in Tai Tung (East Taiwan), was shot at by two Philippine marine policemen.
One Taiwanese fisherman was killed and one severe injury.
Keep in mind that Taiwanese fisherman are constantly fishing other countries waters since they have pretty much depleted their own waters using unsustainable fishing techniques. They've got them all the way in Argentina! Why would countries be attacking them? I don't see them going to Taiwan just to attack some poor fishermen, which could just as easily be Filipinos to begin with. There's no motive unless they were in Philippines waters and or trying to ram the boat. 20 dead in 10 years? Stop going into other countries waters and it'll stop, as simple as that.

Hard to believe there is still a naive soul like you around.

SO what you are saying is all fishermen should stay at home and fish.

What unsustainable fishing techniques is Taiwanese fishermen or for that matter any fishermen of the world are using today?

SO what if the Taiwanese fishing vessels sailed to Argentina or near California? Is there an international law against that?

You did not point to the fact that the world has been complaining that Japan is depleting the ocean of all the whales and fishes as well incidentally.
And did Japan comply? Except for one thing, More advance nation e.g. Japan fishing boats have more advanced electronic sonars, etc and can escaped faster before they are confronted. So their catch is generally higher and it is not so easy to catch them as well.

SO please tell me what is the sustainable fishing techniques?
Catching them with a fishing rod and then throw them back to the ocean as some of the celebrated fisherman on the TV do.

As the population of the world increases, so will the fight for food esp. fishes in the oceans.

I say they should fish where they are allowed to fish. Believe it or not there are rules to the oceans and you can't just go fishing where ever you want and whatever you want. And you call me naive. Unsustainable? We could start with nets with holes that are too small (this killed a diver near Taipei not long ago) and shark fin practices (ie. cutting the fin and throwing the rest). This isn't about Japan and Yes I am against that practice as well. How about fish farming or using nets that don't catch every damn this in the sea. I've gone fishing enough to know that the rule of thumb is if it's on your hook/ net its big enough to keep. This is why no small fish are able to grow into full sized fish worth eating. But this is the whole problem here isn't it, jumping to conclusions without any facts, except for one dead man that seems to get forgotten about. Let the facts come out first and remember this was a minor confrontation not a full scale national assault on a country (or against Han Chinese) like people are making it out to be.

There is an international law about pacific waters named UNCLOS. The country Taiwan as well as the Philippine is covered in the law. However, the fishing occurred on the northern tip of Philippines but still within 200 km distance from the Taiwan island, which overlaps. The thing is, we must have respect in each other's land. This first incident of killing occurred because it's the first time Taiwanese went fishing in Philippine waters. I keep asking this question: if it is legal for Taiwanese to fish in that certain part of waters, then why other Taiwanese before did not do it? We all know for sure that coast guards are always there - why is it the first time fisherman were killed? Is it cold blooded murder or protecting from these people to exploiting the resources that were aren't theirs in the first place after overexploiting their's?

The diplomatic row erupted after a joint patrol of the Philippine Coast Guard and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources sprayed bullets at a Taiwanese fishing boat, the Kuang Ta Hsing No. 28, while it was operating in the

OVERLAPPING ECONOMICS ZONES

of the two countries on May 9.

In other words what you are saying is that fishermen from both nations should not sailed to these disputed water and if the Pinoy fishing boats appeared in these disputed water, it is OK for Taiwanese Patrol Boats to spray their machine guns at them.

1. What do you understand about UNCLOS or its limitation?

2. So it is not COLD BLOODED MURDER if you considered them as intruders. But the water is disputed.

3. Like it or not, in setting this precedent, all your Pinoy fishing boat are endangered and will be apprehended and attacked by the navies of other claimant states says Indonesia, Malaysia or Vietnam.

4. So I pretty sure with such simple mindset, you Pinoy will shoot any intruder who dare to enter into your compound and your Pinoy law will protects you. If the intruder happens to be a visiting relative, you came simply claimed they he/she has intruded into your property and the cold blooded killing is justified. No wonder Philippines is heading for WAR with all her neighbors.

So tell me why is the TAIWANESE NAVY there since you says these water belongs to Philippines and the Taiwanese fishing vessels should not be there in the first place?

The Pinoy Navy should be there since they think that those water belongs to her and by this act Taiwan has indeed violated Philippines sovereignty if it only belong to Philippines.

Aquino BLUNDERS IN SHOOTING AFTERMATH!

Philippine President Benigno Aquino III is facing a STRONG BACKLASH following his MISHANDLING of the fatal shooting of a Taiwanese fisherman by the Filipino coast guard in the Bashi Strait on May 9.

It was an act of BRAZEN PIRATICAL which VIOLATED every international law and humanitarian convention and it was not the first such incident between the two sides.

In January 2006, the Filipino coastguard also killed one Taiwanese fisherman and wounded another without offering any apology.

This time, the Filipino atrocity has aroused public wrath and Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou has taken a firm stand with his outright rejection of the rather insincere responses from the Philippines.

The most recent incident took place in an area where Taiwan and the Philippines have overlapping exclusive economic zones and the initial response which came from one Philippines fishery official was quite absurd.

He claimed that one of his vessels opened fire "in self-defense" as it was "under threat of being rammed."

It seems highly unlikely that a TINY 15-ton unarmed WOODENn fishing boat would try to RAM a far LARGER STEEL ship.

Due to the lukewarm response from the Philippines, including the insincere and inconsistent responses to Ma Ying-jeou's 72-hour ultimatum,(Aquino's letter calls the "unfortunate" incident "unintentional") Taiwan imposed sanctions on the Philippines and sent its powerful destroyer, frigates and Mirage fighters to the site of shooting to demonstrate Taiwan's determination to defend its rights.

In addition, and in accordance with the terms of the ultimatum, Taiwan recalled its envoy to the Philippines, froze Filipino applications for work permits and ceased virtually all economic exchanges with the Philippines.

Where to begin? It's youtube! Anyone can post anything! It doesn't make it true. I could post a video telling the world I'm packing 30cm in the pants...it doesn't make it true. Ma Ying Joke only took a firm stance after the public outcry(cause by the ridiculous media reports). If no out cry I don't know if we'd even be arguing this right now. It's all a desperate move by a president with a sub 20% approval rating, also, a handy distraction from the No Nuclear movement as well. The ramming thing is in line what with these boats often times do when caught in the wrong waters, check out some videos of kamikaze piots and tell me a smaller vessel can't sink a bigger one. The apology while not sincere was the best they will get considering the way they made a list of conditions that NO country would EVER agree to. Why should they even apologize to the country? Apologize to the family of the victim. Also, why should they agree to all of that when the investigation has barely even started. It's like demanding a suspect be executed before given a trial. Sounds like ROC's own White Terror to me.

Off course it is youtube and anybody can post on it.

Some of us just cannot visualized without pictures?

So the question for you a Philippines defending Taiwan based resident to answer?
Is it true that the shooting occured within 5 nautical miles of Taiwan own territorial water as alleged?

Sounds like you are either TRAPPED within your own internal POLITICS or you are in fact just another Taipei based foreigner. Hahaha hahaha

1. 11 thugs in Pinoy Coast Guards uniform in a 100-ft steel vessel fired 45 large-caliber bullets at a small unarmed Wooden Taiwanese fishing boat and for one hour.

2. Why is Philippines Coast Guards withholding a videotape of the incident involving the brutal killing of a Taiwanese fisherman?

3. The Taiwanese Map shows that the Pinoy attacker killed a foreign national inside Taiwan's own 200-mile EEZ (ie. exclusive economic zone).

4. Are you disputing the above when you says Taiwanese fishing boats should not be there meaning that is not Taiwanese water.
