Duterte ordered AFP to stop patrolling West PH sea — Alejano
PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to stop patrolling the controversial West Philippine Sea, according to Magdalo party-list Representative Gary Alejano yesterday.
Alejano said that, according to his military sources, Duterte has ordered the AFP to stop wasting their time in patrolling the disputed area.
“I received information that the Duterte administration ordered our Armed Forces not to patrol the West Philippine Sea anymore,” Alejano said during a news forum.
“Ayun sa information na nakuha natin na ‘wag na tayong magsayang ng oras sa West Philippine Sea kasi wala rin naman mangyayari. Gagastos tayo ng fuel diyan wala rin naman mangyayari … so ‘wag na kayo mag-patrolya,” the opposition lawmaker added.
When pressed for more information, Alejano said he did not have enough hard evidence to back up his claims. However, Alejano maintained that he trusts his sources. “I’m confident with the information coming from my sources,” he said.
