Joint elements of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and the Philippine Navy seized corals of different species worth P3 million as they were about to be smuggled from Cebu to Korea on Wednesday afternoon.

Commodore Cecil Chen, PCG-Cebu District commander, said three Cebuanos were arrested in the operation but were turned over to the Navy for questioning.

The corals, reportedly owned by one Jose Jess Pagobo, were reportedly set for shipment to a certain Mr. Park in Korea.
