“The Philippines dropped the ball,” Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio said on Wednesday, describing the Duterte administration’s handling of Manila’s victory over Beijing in the South China Sea dispute. “The stunning victory became strangely orphaned. The Duterte administration refused to celebrate the ruling even though the ruling legally secured the Philippines a vast maritime zone larger than the total land area of the Philippines,” Carpio said.
