MECO主席 裴瑞茲

此行,我以總統艾奎諾三世委任的菲律賓特使身分,代表總統和菲律賓人民,為國家海岸防衛隊員在5月9日於菲律賓海域北部,造成台灣漁民洪石成的不幸和非蓄意意外事件深表遺憾,並致上最深刻的歉意。

此行,我也來傳達我方願意提供洪石成家屬經濟上的援助,以表達全體菲律賓人民對造成洪石成死亡事件,最深切的慰問。

菲律賓國家調查局也已遵從總統的指示, 全面、詳盡、公正和迅速地展開對這次事件的徹查。事件也已經被列為最高等級事件來處理。

我感謝昨晚外交部亞太司司長何登煌的會見。我們能理解洪石成家屬和台灣人民因這次事件所受到的傷害以及悲痛情緒。我們也希望再次重申,菲律賓人民高度重視和尊重台灣人民。

Statement of Chairman Amadeo Perez

Manila Economic and Cultural Office

In my capacity as the designated personal representative of President Benigno S. Aquino III, I came to convey the President’s and the Filipino people’s deep regret and apology over the unfortunate and unintended loss of life in the course of a fisheries law enforcement operation on 09 May 2013 by a Philippine Coast Guard/Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources maritime patrol in waters in the northern Philippines.

I also came to convey our readiness to give financial assistance to the family of Mr. Hung as a token of solidarity and as an expression of sympathy by the Filipino people for the demise of Mr. Hung.

Upon orders from the President, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has already initiated the investigation and is committed to a thorough, exhaustive, impartial and expeditious investigation of the incident. The NBI has given this case the highest priority.

I am grateful for the meeting with Director-General Benjamin Ho of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs last night. We understand the grief and hurt of the family and of the people of Taiwan over this unfortunate loss and we wish to reaffirm the high regard and respect of the people of the Philippines for the people of Taiwan
