Piñol Says It’s ‘Unfair’ to Accuse PH Gov’t Intimidates Pinoy Fishermen To Change Story

PH GOV’T – Agri Chief Manny Piñol said it’s unfair if the people are accusing the Philippine government to intimidate the story of the fishermen.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte reacted on the West Philippine Sea incident saying it is just a “little maritime accident.”

His statements gathered various reactions from the Filipino people including the politicians and celebrities.

Ina previous article, actor Robin Padilla sided with President Duterte saying he’s making the right decision for the country.

The young Filipino children will be affected the most if the Philippines will go to war against China.

“Sinabi ng ating mahal na pangulo na hindi yun dahilan para tayo ay makipag-giyera sa China at tayo’y matunaw na…”

He also suggested that the people who wanted to attack China because of the coat collision should not drag the Pinoy Army.

“Wag na natin idamay pa yung Armed Forces, yung Pilipinas. Sarili nalang ninyong sikap kung talagang matapang kayo, edi patunayan niyo dun,” he added.

According to the report, Agriculture Secretay Emmanuel Piñol said the people should not accuse the government of influencing the fishermen to change their story.

“Let me just correct the impression that there was any attempt on the part of the government or this administration to intimidate the fishermen to change their story or come up with a lie that is favorable to the government,” said Piñol.

“That is unfair to well-meaning people in government right now,” he said.
