6 August 2016

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) said it has deployed another vessel to conduct routine patrol near Scarborough Shoal, according to a Philippine Star’s report.

PCG spokesperson Commander Armand Balilo said that aside from the 56-meter BRP Pampanga, the 35-meter BRP Nueva Vizcaya would join the patrol in the disputed waters. BRP Pampanga started its patrol in the area last month.

 “The tour of duty of each ship would last for five days. They would be there for law enforcement patrol against poaching and other lawless activities,” said Balilo.

The Coast Guard official added that they are leaving it up to the commanding officer of the two ships to determine how far they would conduct patrols.
