Young Chinese fisherman dies at sea

June 15, 2016

 

There seems to be conflicting stories regarding the young Chinese man, who passed away last month on aboard a fishing vessel. It has been reported that the young man had gotten sick on board and had been receiving medication; he then passed away, and was kept on board inside a fridge until they reached our ports. The cause of death by ship owners was reported as “natural causes’’. Traumatized by the event several Indonesian fishermen requested to be sent home.

My concern is that there was no investigation regarding the incident.

I have my own thoughts regarding the death of that young man, as I deal with fisherman and their struggles on a daily basis, I know how some of them are treated and the ridiculous hours they work.

 

The Indonesian consulate is playing a major role in protecting fisherman, by implementing laws with hopes to stop the operations of back yard agencies; my hope is that the Philippine consulate does too. I hope to visit the Philippines this September to raise some of these issues.
