The Chinese Embassy is highly concerned about the recent tragic case of a Chinese citizen who was handcuffed and killed in a fall in the Philippines, the statement said.
The Chinese Embassy welcomes the statement made by Panero, spokesman for the Presidential Palace of the Philippines. The Philippine presidential palace has asked the Philippine police to seriously investigate the incident, Panero said. The Philippine side will stop these illegal acts and will not allow or tolerate any foreigners abusing anyone in the Philippines. The Chinese Embassy highly appreciates the statement made by the Presidential Palace on combating illegal acts and protecting the safety of Chinese citizens.

Earlier, local media in the Philippines reported that a 27-year-old Chinese man had fallen from the sixth floor of an office building in Manila at about 4 a.m. on August 9 and died. Video surveillance showed the deceased trying to climb out of the sixth floor window and wear handcuffs before falling. The Philippine police then launched an investigation.
