Justice Carpio's Benham Rise 101
MetadataShow full item record
The notes by Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio T. Carpio on Benham Rise are very useful as the 13-million-hectare undersea region east of Luzon is in the news with the disclosure last week by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana that Chinese survey ships were spotted in the area last year. Filipinos are familiar with Scarborough or Panatag Shoal, Pag-asa island and other features in the disputed Spratlys in the South China Sea. But Benham Rise?. It seems that even President Duterte is not familiar with Benham Rise based on his answer to GMATV’s Joseph Morong’s question.
