Pangasinan Gov wants ship laden with 1.3 M liters of crude oil out of Sual Bay

Pangasinan Governor Ramon Guico III urged the Bureau of Customs (BOC) to take action and remove a ship loaded with more than a million liters of oil from Sual Bay.

In an emergency meeting on Monday, May 22, the Politiko made the appeal and said he wanted the ship to be moved to a safer location to protect the bay area from destruction in case the crude oil leaks from the ship.

Provincial Legal Officer Baby Ruth Torre said she has already sent a written request to the BOC to formalize the governor’s request, noting that MV Veronica I is now under the custody of the BOC office in Sual after its seizure for failing to show the necessary documents for its cargo.
