From time to time, we read news about illegal poachers caught on Philippine waters. There was a time that some 11 Chinese fishermen were caught with a cargo of Pangolins, the so called ant eaters caught in Palawan islands, inside Philippine territory. But most of the incidents involved fishermen - Chinese, Taiwanese, Vietnamese and not too long ago some Japanese. It seems that the Philippine coast guard has no power to have full control of the territory.
