Government officials, including President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), have urged the people of Taiwan not to vent their anger on Filipinos. This has eased their concerns, she added.

She also expressed concern about Taiwan’s moratorium on hiring Filipino workers, which is one of a number of sanctions against Manila over its handling of the shooting.
