Malacañang has supported the move of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to include China in the list of countries whose survey vessels are prohibited in Philippine waters.

"We ask the Philippine National Police, which is seriously looking into the matter, including tracking down the supervisor of the victim who allegedly made the former a prisoner, to treat the case with dispatch", Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said. We go down this road of letting Chinese nationals be hurt, our people in China will pay.

"[DFA] firing off diplomatic protest", Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. tweeted in response to the remarks of Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana.

The Chinese embassy in the Philippines issued a statement on Monday, expressing concern over the tragic death of a Chinese citizen in Las Pinas, a city in Metro Manila.

Golden Tate's appeal denied, Giants wide receiver will serve four-game suspension

"The Chinese Embassy highly appreciate the Palace's call to put a stop to these illegal acts, as well as the commitment to protecting the safety of Chinese citizens in the Philippines", the Chinese Embassy said.

The industry, known as the Philippine offshore gaming operators or POGOs, had been luring Chinese nationals to the country, even to the point of skirting local labor regulations to employ them since the system was introduced in 2016. It said China would take action to prevent cross-border gambling. While it vowed to strictly enforce the law, the government also urged Chinese nationals to report their errant employers to proper authorities.

The protest comes ahead of President Rodrigo Duterte's planned visit to Beijing this month, during which he has promised to raise Manila's South China Sea global arbitration victory over Beijing with leader Xi Jinping, having avoided confronting the thorny issue for three years.

Last week, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) said it continues efforts to increase tax collections.
