Last week, the Chinese embassy urged the Philippine government to effectively protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens in the country, saying some of them were physically tortured, injured and even murdered. "It makes no difference who the killers, killing happened here. Exceptions invite bribes", Locsin said in a tweet, in reaction to Panelo's statement that there is nothing wrong with seeking United States assistance in monitoring the country's EEZ.

Based on previous reports, security footage showed a 27-year-old Chinese man, identified as Yang Kang, peering out a window of an establishment in Las Piñas, climbing out of it and then falling to his death. He was found dead wearing handcuffs. Triads as generous as drug cartels-a hint to administration critics. We go down this road of letting Chinese nationals be hurt, our people in China will pay.

Moreover, the Chinese embassy welcomed the statement of Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo that the presidential office has already ordered the Philippine National Police to look into the case and that the Philippines "will not allow nor tolerate any kind of abuse inflicted on any foreigner".

This was after a local news site reported about the vessel, adding that it was loaded with passengers of Chinese nationality. "We're to confirm this on our own especially in the east fronting Pacific Ocean because we do not have any radar equipment there to monitor the area", Lorenzana said, adding that the military's radars can not also detect the supposed Chinese ship in Ilocos Norte in the West Philippine Sea.

China's embassy in Manila did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Panelo expressed concern on these reports and encouraged foreign nationals to immediately report any illegal acts of their employers to proper authorities.

"No one is exempted from the strict enforcement of our laws of the land", he said.
