TUBBATAHA GROUP TELLS US EMBASSY: PAY FOR CORAL DAMAGES

1

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY: In its continuing quest to seek settlement for damages caused on more than 2,000 square meters of corals in the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park by the USS Guardian, Tubbataha Management Office (TMO) top executive Angelique Songco denied firmly Tuesday that it is not true that they did not communicate with the US government. In a local radio interview yesterday, the TMO manager said they immediately communicated with the US government in April to seek for compensation for over 2,000 square meters of damaged corals that the minesweeper warship caused when it ran aground in Tubbataha. “They know that we wrote to them early, and they replied to us two times, acknowledging the receipt of our letter,” Songco asserted. The $1.5 million the TMO is trying to collect are miniscule for the US government, she said.

  1. Huwag naman masyadong ipahalata na masyado tayong easy sa mga Americano dahil ally natin sila.Yong Intsik ang naka damage sa tubbataha ay nakaheadline kaagad kung magkano ang multa nila at ora mismo ay kailangang bayaran nang mga Intsik.
    Kailangan the same tretment should be given to all whether you are an ally or not. Don’t be obvious that we have special treatment,because the world is watching.
