It seems the BRP Capones is now helping out in the Mindanao area. It's curious there was no ceremony to welcome it.

PCG: Joint personnel of BRP Capones (MRRV 4404) and DF 314 successfully rescued a total of thirty (30) fishermen onboard capsized fishing banca SM, owned and operated by Mr. Abdul Matba at vicinity 4 nautical miles East South East of Great Sta.Cruz Island, Zamboanga City at 6:38 AM yesterday, 15 October.

Initial reports revealed that at 3:30 AM of said date, the wife of the boat captain, Mrs. Delia Matba informed Coast Guard Station (CGS) Zamboanga regarding the incident.

Accordingly, F/B SM encountered big waves, strong winds and heavy rains that caused her outrigger to break and was dragged towards the adjacent island of Tictabon, Zamboanga City and eventually capsized.

Upon receipt of the report, CGS Zamboanga coordinated with Coast Guard District South Western Mindanao (CGDSWM). CGDSWM then directed BRP Capones (MRRV 4404) and DF 314 for the conduct of search and rescue (SAR) operations. PCG SAR team immediately proceeded to the said vicinity, sighted the fishermen clinging to their capsized fishing banca and subsequently rescued all thirty (30) of them.

Likewise, PCG medical team rendered necessary medical assistance to the survivors and were later brought to CGS Zamboanga for proper profiling and disposition.

PCG: In response to maritime security challenges, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) formally opens the vessel boarding workshop to be led by the US Coast Guard (USCG) in Manila which aims to combat global terrorism and illegal drugs proliferation as part of South East Asia Cooperation and Training (SEACAT) Exercise, an annual multilateral maritime security information sharing exercise.

This year, the SEACAT Exercise 2017 comprises of three phases which kicks off with the conduct of Academic seminar to be held in Singapore on 21-25 August; Boarding workshop in Manila on 21-23 August; and Command Post Exercise in Singapore and Brunei, and the Sea phase to be conducted in the waters of South and South East Asia on the 28 August-01 September.

The Academic Phase will be participated by liaison officers of cooperating agencies which aims to harness skills in communicating, collaborating, analyzing the scenarios to be facilitated by the US Navy, and communicating to respective headquarters to promote regional coordination and interoperability.

One of the highlights of the said exercise is the conduct of Maritime Interdiction Operation (MIO) or Visit, Board and Search and Seizure (VBSS) Workshop to be led by the USCG Law Enforcement Detachment which will be participated by 45 representatives from the Philippine Coast Guard, Philippine Navy, Indonesian Coast Guard (BAKAMLA), Indonesian Navy (TNI-AL), Sri Lanka Navy, Royal Thai Navy, Vietnam Coast Guard, Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency, and Thai Maritime Law Enforcement Coordinating Center. During the boarding workshop, the use of force, positive control measures for compliant boarding and non-complaint crew members, multiple-man room entry, tactical movements through passageways and inspections, and practical and hands on scenarios with role players will be finally executed onboard PCG vessels, BRP Corregidor (AE-891), BRP Davao del Norte (SARV-3504) and MRRV 4404 “Capones”.

During the last phase, Command Post Exercise/ Field Training Exercise, a number of unscripted boarding provided by the US Navy will be carried out simultaneously in Singapore, Brunei and the Philippines. Aircrafts and vessels from participating navies and coast guards will investigate, conduct and execute practical maritime responses such as MIO or VBSS.

The SEACAT 2017 will also have two tracking and boarding scenarios in the Philippines that will be conducted by the PCG in the West off Subic, Zambales and Philippine Navy off Sulu Sea respectively.

The endeavor will be the first time for the PCG to host the said event since its launching in 2002 with six partner navies from Brunei, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines and participated as an observer in 2016.

On November 20, 2017, Ambassador Koji Haneda attended the Turn-Over Ceremony of three 7m class fast boats (Rigid Hull Inflated Boats: RHIBs) and the Commissioning Ceremony of three 44m class patrol vessels (Multi-Role Response Vessels: MRRVs) at the Headquarters of the Philippines Coast Guard (PCG).  Secretary of Transportation, Atty. Arthur Tugade, National Security Adviser and Director-General of the National Security Council, Gen. Hermogenes Esperon also attended the ceremonies.  These high-speed boats and patrol vessels are provided to the Philippines through Japan’s Official Development Assistance (ODA).

The three 7m class high-speed boats are the first batch of the thirteen high-speed boats that will be provided to the Philippines with Japan’s grant.  They are provided in response to President Duterte’s direct request.   

The three newly commissioned patrol vessels are the 4th, 5th, and 6th vessels ,“Capones”,”Suluan” and “Sindangan” respectively of the ten 44m class patrol vessels that are financed, designed, and built through Japan’s support. 

Together with coastal monitoring radars that Japan has recently decided to provide to the Philippines, these newly provided ships are aimed to improve the Philippines’ patrol, search and rescue, anti-terrorism, and law enforcement capabilities.

In his remarks, Ambassador Haneda pointed out that President Duterte recently stated in Tokyo that our two countries are entering a “Golden Age” of strategic partnership, and that Ambassador Haneda is looking forward to working together in further strengthening such relations.
