- Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. called for justice over the killing of a Chinese national
- Yang Kang was found dead after falling from the 6th floor of his office
- The victim was seen handcuffed when the incident happened
Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. shared on social media that he agreed with Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo that the Chinese national who was killed while being handcuffed should be given justice immediately.
KAMI learned that Locsin said that the Filipinos in China will pay the consequences if the Chinese nationals in the Philippines are not being taken cared of.
In a report by ABS-CBN News, Locsin aired his thoughts over the killing on Twitter.
"One hundred percent agree with China on this one. We go down this road of letting Chinese nationals be hurt, our people in China will pay. Send carping yellows to China when the anti-Filipino riots start to take the sacrificial place of our people working at good jobs there," Locsin wrote.

“It makes no difference who killer(s) are, killing happened here. Our obligation to bring them to justice pronto. Unless opposition wants to thank Chinese triads. Triads as generous as drug cartels—a hint to administration critics. Deep pockets to line deep convictions,” he said in a different tweet.
As reported by GMA News (author Margaret Claire Layug), a 27-year-old Chinese national died after falling from the sixth floor of his office last Friday.
The victim was identified as Yang Kang, who was found handcuffed. The police suspected that his employer was holding the Chinese national as prisoner.
Teodoro "Teddy Boy" López Locsin Jr. was born on Nov. 15, 1948. He served as the Philippine Ambassador to the United Nations before he became the secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs.
