THIS IS GOOD WILL : 7,000 FILIPINO PRISONERS IN SABAH CAN FINALLY COME HOME



Just like President Rodrigo Duterte's previous trips, his recent trip from Malaysia gives another  good outcome.Aside from strengthening the brotherhood of two nations against terrorism and other issues,  a chance to show goodwill and friendship has once again proved Asian courtesy among our greatest traits.
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, after meeting with Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, has allowed the release of 7,000 Filipinos detained in Sabah. Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said that the two countries agreed for gradual repatriation of  the Filipinos in Malaysia.


President Duterte said that repatriation of illegal Filipino immigrants is among the agreements between him and Prime Minister Najib Razak. According to President Duterte, they both committed to have a joint coordination for the “pursuit, interdiction, and arrest” or criminals and terrorists plying the waterways between the Philippines and Malaysia. He also said that Malaysia will help for theimplementation phase of the peace process between the Philippine government and the MILF.




The Philippine government has also shown the same courtesy to the government of Vietnam when President Duterte send off 17 Vietnamese fishermen to freedom after they were apprehended for trespassing .

The freed fishermen, with their boats carrying fresh supplies, sailed from the coastal town of Sual, Pangasinan with one of the boats bearing a  sign saying: "President Duterte Thank you. From: Vietnam fishermen".

President Duterte said that the case was brought to his attention During his visit to Hanoi. As a sign of good will and friendship, the Vietnamese are now free and at the comfort of their home and beloved family.
However,the fate of these five Filipino Seaman was far different.They had been held captive by Somali pirates and suffered a different fate with the hands of the ruthless bandits. Some even cried while relating their ordeal with the unforgiving pirates.They even said they were lucky to be alive.
