Philippine government to refloat sunken ferry.

This is from pacificnews.
I understand that fishing is prohibited near the vessel as a precaution since part of the cargo was a pesticide. I can't fathom why the remains would need to go half way around the world to Bosnia for DNA testing!

Manila, Philippines - The Philippine government will begin operations to refloat the ill-fated MV Princess of the Stars this week.
The vessel owned by Sulpicio Lines will be refloated to allow the recovery of trapped bodies inside, and the shipment of a highly toxic pesticide called endosulfan.
Meanwhile, the remains of the victims of the ferry disaster will be sent to Bosnia for DNA tests.
