Chinese sailors detained by the Philippines are under investigation

Today, 11 Chinese fishermen, detained by the Philippine Maritime Police on May 6, will face a prosecutor in Puerto Princesa, Xinhua reported.

The head of the prosecution, Claro Arellano, said that on Friday the Chinese refused the services of a public defender, so the case was postponed until Monday.

The vessel was arrested in the disputed waters of the South China Sea and, despite the Chinese demand to immediately release the vessel and its crew, was towed to Puerto Princesa, where the crew was charged with poaching and hunting animals of rare species in the Philippines.
