The wife of the captain of the Filipino ship that allegedly sunk by a Chinese Vessel along the West Philippine Sea on June 12 expressed her disappointment to the government.
In different interviews, Lani Insigne the wife of Junel Insigne who owned the F/B Gem-Ver said that they canceled their meeting with the President because of their anger after the government downplayed the incident.
Mrs. Insigne said that she called her husband and urged her not to meet the President.
“Wala ring mangyayari sa kanya doon, anong gagawin niya doon? Katulad niyan binalita na wala naman magaganap na pag pupulong, anong gagawin niya doon?” she said.
She also expressed her anger to the Department of Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi who raised doubts on the story of the fishermen led by Insigne.
In another interview, Insigne even challenged President Rodrigo Duterte, saying that if the chief executive really wanted to talk to the fishermen, he should go personally to Mindoro.
“Dapat siya ang pumunta dito,” she said.
On Sunday, it was announced that President Duterte was scheduled to meet Junel Insigne so they can talk about the incident happened in the West Philippine Sea.
However, Insigne made a decision not to meet with the President because of some “personal” reasons.
Meanwhile, it was reported that Vice President Leni Robredo is also expected to meet Mr. and Mrs. Insigne and the other fishermen involved in the WPS incident today.
