MANILA, Philippines — Sisimulan nang dinggin ngayong Martes ng The Hague Permanent Court of Arbitration ang merito ng kaso ng Pilipinas laban sa China kaugnay ng West Philippine Sea territorial dispute.

Noong October 30, naglabas ng desisyon ang tribunal na may hurisdiksyon ito sa kaso.

Tiwala naman ang Malakanyang sa kakayahan ng delegasyon ng Pilipinas na nasa The Hague, Netherlands.

Complaint filed before ICC vs PRRD, a black propaganda — Atty. Panelo

UNTV News   •   April 25, 2017

MANILA — Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Atty. Salvador Panelo said that the complaint filed before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands against President Rodrigo Duterte is just a black propaganda.

The complaint was filed by the camp of self-confessed hitman Edgar Matobato. According to Panelo, the complaint will not move forward in the ICC because it is baseless since there is no state-sponsored or extrajudicial killings in the country.

Aside from this, Panelo does not believe it will fall under crime against humanity since there is no murder against particular class of people.

“Apparently, the intention is to black propaganda the President hoping that media worldwide would catch on it, and paint against the President a murderer when in fact, he’s only doing his constitutional duty to protect and preserve his country,” Panelo said. — UNTV News & Rescue

China will be the ‘loser’ if it does not recognize an international court ruling against its territorial claims in the South China Sea, Philippine Foreign Minister Perfecto Yasay said on Tuesday.

An arbitration court in The Hague infuriated China in July when it ruled that China had no historical title over the South China Sea and it had breached the Philippines’ sovereign rights.

China has ignored the ruling that none of its claims in the disputed Spratly Islands entitled it to a 200-mile (320 km) exclusive economic zone. Its construction work on reefs there has alarmed other claimants, as well the United States and Japan.

“We are trying to make China understand especially when the dust settles that unless they respect and recognize the arbitral tribunal, they will be the losers at the end of that day on this matter,” Yasay told a congressional hearing.

Prior to starting bilateral talks, the Philippines plans to seal a deal for China to allow Philippine fishermen to access the resource-rich waters, Yasay said.

China seized Scarborough Shoal in 2012, denying Philippine fishermen access, one of the factors that prompted Manila to seek arbitration.

“When we start formal negotiations or bilateral engagements with China, we will have to do it within the context of the arbitral decision. There are no buts or ifs insofar as our policy on this matter is concerned,” Yasay said.

China claims almost the entire South China Sea, through which more than $5 trillion of trade moves annually. Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam also have claims in the sea, believed to be rich in energy deposits.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said last week he expects talks with China to start within a year. — Reuters

China has the right to set up an air defense zone in the South China Sea, but this will depend on the level of threats faced, China’s Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin said on Wednesday.

China hopes to return to bilateral talks with Manila over the South China Sea, Liu said, following a ruling by an international arbitration panel which found in favor of the Philippines on a number of disputes in the region.
