    OLONGAPO CITY: Four Chinese, arrested in a raid on a suspected floating shabu laboratory anchored off Subic Bay waters, pleaded not guilty during arraignment on Friday for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

    The arrested suspects–Wing Fai Lo, 42; Chan Kwok Tung, 28; Shu Fook Leung, 49; and Kam Wah Kwok, 47–were arraigned before the Olongapo City Regional Trial Court Branch 75 under Presiding Judge Raymond Viray.

    Speaking through an interpreter from the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO), the four entered a not-guilty plea on the charges against them.

    The Philippine National Police (PNP) Anti-Illegal Drug Group (AIDG) operatives on June 11 raided a 50-meter fishing vessel anchored off Barangay Calapandayan in Subic town and found one-half kilo of shabu estimated at P2.5 million and a hydro-generator set capable of producing 50 kilos of the illegal substance in a single cycle.

    Authorities said the Chinese, believed to be chemists, may have arrived in the country by plane and ferried to the boat some two kilometers off the coastline.

    PNP-AIDG officials said materials used to manufacture shabu were imported into the country and prepared inside the vessel.

    The illegal drug was then picked up from the boat, with the connivance of some fishermen, and delivered to drug traders.

    The vessel was reportedly also used for the distribution of the illegal drug in various parts of Luzon, particularly the Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley, Pangasinan and Subic, Zambales.

    The PNP-AIDG escorted the suspects to the court for their arraignment and later turned them over to Bureau of Jail Management and Penology officers in Olongapo City.

    The next hearing was set on August 26.

    1. Here again some poor Filipino fishermen because of poverty collaborated.
      ———————————————-

      Thanks to 6 years of Aquino doing nothing for the country spending 2% of the budget on education, Congress stealing the pork barrel funds, Aquino and Abad misusing the DAP fund, Yolanda funds, no jobs, low pay, endo, high rates for basic services etc

      Crime drugs and smuggling became the only options left

      Thanks to Aquino’s administration the Philippines is further behind that ever before.

    2. In the boat itself these 4 moron were already shoot these people are ruining the Filipino future i hope government shall kill this 4 Chinese the same fate what they did to our kababayan in China in relation to drugs.

    3. Here again some poor Filipino fishermen because of poverty collaborated(very poor excuse) with those Chinese (foreigners) into doping our innocent children , so they will become (Zoombie) useless and unproductive citizens the rest of their life. Those Chinese has no business or shouldn’t be allowed to live in the Philippines , must be deported , because they are menace to our society.Thank God we finally have an intelligent President Duterte who is perceptive and identify the big drug problems, and because he cares deeply, he is doing something to eradicate those druglords and those lawless police generals and gov’t officials whose self-interest comes first. By the way , drug problem would have been minimized and corrected if parents do their responsibility in knowing what their kids are doing daily and who are they getting involved. Parents shld not depend fully on their Yaya and their school teachers because the primary responsibility totally falls on the parents of those kids.
