MANILA, Philippines — Acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio said the Philippines should file another diplomatic protest against China.

This is in line with the report that a Chinese coast guard seized the catch of Filipino fishermen at Panatag Shoal.

Carpio noted that the Philippines should also ask for indemnification from China over the inconvenience it has caused among Filipino fishermen.

“That’s already a violation of the arbitral ruling. Plus, the fact that the Chinese coast guard as they put it, the Chinese coast guard people are taking the catch of our fishermen which is not correct,” said Carpio.  — Mai Bermudez | UNTV News & Rescue

Robie de Guzman   •   July 30, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines on Friday received another batch of COVID-19 vaccines made by Chinese firm Sinovac Biotech, the National Task Force (NTF) against COVID-19 said.

The shipment containing 1 million doses arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport at past 7:30 a.m. via a Cebu Pacific flight.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III and representatives from the NTF welcomed the arrival of the new vaccine supply.

Duque said 60 to 70 percent of this shipment will be deployed to the NCR Plus, while the rest will be dispatched to cities tagged as high risk areas.

The latest batch was part of the 26 million COVID-19 vaccine doses, called CoronaVac, purchased by the Philippine government.

This brings to 19.5 million the total number of Sinovac vaccines delivered to the country so far, including the 1 million doses donated by the government of China.

As of July 30, the Philippines has received a total of 33,860,700 doses of COVID-19 vaccines from six different manufacturers.

Paglalantad ng identity ng social media users, ipinanukala vs trolling

Robie de Guzman   •   July 28, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Ilantad ang pagkakakilanlan ng social media users – ito ang nakikitang paraan ni dating Supreme Court (SC) Associate Justice at 1Sambayan lead-convenor Antonio Carpio upang masugpo ang isyu ng trolling.

Ang social media trolling ay pag-atake ng ilang netizen sa mga hindi pumapabor sa kanilang paniniwala.

“The solution is simple: require all those who comment on online publications, online platforms, to reveal their real identity. If you are from China state your name, state your country of residence,” ani Carpio.

Aniya, hindi dapat payagan ng management ng social media platforms ang mga pekeng account o mga gawa-gawa lang ang pangalan.

Layunin nitong matukoy at agad mapanagot ang sinumang nagpo-post ng maling impormasyon o kaya ay paninira sa social media.

Mahihimok din ang social media users na maging maingat sa pagpo-post ng impormasyon o mensahe dahil sila ay maaaring maparusahan.

“Because if you put your real name you will be circumspect, you will weigh every word you put there because you could be sued for libel or you could be laughed up if you express something ridiculous,” ani Carpio.

Naniniwala ang dating mahistrado na hindi ito mahirap gawin para sa mga nangangasiwa ng social media platform.

Inihalimbawa pa nito ang ginawang pagkansela noon ng Facebook sa mga fake account na natukoy mula sa Fuijan Province sa China na nagpapahayag ng suporta para sa administrasyong Duterte. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Dante Amento)

PH gov’t to verify reports on foreign ships’ alleged sewage dumping in West Philippine Sea

Robie de Guzman   •   July 14, 2021


MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine government will look into a report that some foreign vessels were allegedly dumping sewage wastes in the contested parts of the West Philippine Sea, Malacañang said Wednesday.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque issued the statement in response to a report released by US-based geospatial imagery firm, Simularity, which stated that foreign ships have been dumping sewage and human wastes in the reefs of the disputed waters.

“The responsible answer is we are verifying first, we will react if it’s been verified,” Roque said in a press briefing.

“We should accord our neighbors, and our friends the presumption of good faith, when they say something about an issue,” he added.

If the reports are true, Roque said the government would never allow the Philippines to become a garbage dump.

He even cited the incident when the Philippines sent back to Canada its illegally exported trash in 2019.

The Department of National Defense earlier said it is already verifying the report as it noted that the photo accompanying it was supposedly taken on the Australian Great Barrier Reef in 2014.
