The Philippine Coast Guard has sought the assistance of the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Immigration to take custody of the undocumented Chinese nationals from a distressed foreign vessel that was rescued off the coast of Eastern Samar. /PDI

Aside from the lack of proper identification for the crew members, the vessel did not have pertinent documents for its operations.

“It is suspicious because if the vessel lost propulsion in Bashi Channel as they claimed, it should have drifted toward the western seaboard and not the eastern seaboard because of the northeasterly winds and southward current in Bashi Channel at the time,” he said. The vessel, which has been docked off San Pedro Bay in Tacloban City for the last 10 days, made a distress call after it encountered a mechanical problem and was sailing off Suluan Island on the night of Jan. 26. It was towed by the PCG’s patrol ship BRP Cabra to the Tacloban City port the next day.
