Larrazabal praises Masinloc mayor: ‘She’s a good person’
In light of the harassment being experienced by Filipino fishermen in the hands of the Chinese Coast Guard, the mayor of Masinloc, Zambales took a stand for the fisherfolk and appealed for government action.
As captured by the media, Masinloc Mayor Arsenia Lim appealed to President Duterte to intervene to ensure that Filipino fishermen in Scarborough Shoal will not be bullied by Chinese Coast Guard.
According to her, the Scarborough Shoal is a traditional fishing ground—hence there is no need for Filipino fishermen to seek permission from China to wish in our own waters.
Former Commission on Elections commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal, meanwhile, shared Mayor Lim’s appeal on his Twitter account, and gave some positive words about the politician.
“She’s a good person. She faced tremendous odds in 2016. But she won against political veterans. She had a good lawyer,” he said, and gave a wink emoticon.
