Philippines jails Chinese fishermen for infringing wildlife law

General May 10, 2014

PNP members stand guard next to some of the 11 Chinese fishermen, who were arrested by Philippine officials, as they arrive at PNP Maritime Special Boat Unit Palawan headquarters in Honda BayThe Philippines has jailed 11 Chinese fishermen caught with endangered sea turtles off a disputed shoal in the South China Sea, officials said on Saturday, rejecting demands from China to free the men. China has claims on the South China Sea, an area rich in energy deposits and an important passageway traversed each year by $5 trillion worth of ship-borne goods. Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam also have claims on the area. The Philippine National Police on Tuesday intercepted a Chinese fishing boat carrying about 350 marine turtles off Half Moon Shoal in the Spratlys, arrested its crew and took them to the southwestern province of Palawan to face charges of violating wildlife protection laws.
