'Claim damages from China for ruined reefs'
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippine government should demand compensation from China for the damage its coasts guard and fishermen caused on the endangered coral reefs in Panatag or Scarborough Shoal, Sen. Richard Gordon said yesterday. Gordon said the government can site the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and international environmental measures in seeking damages from China as Panatag Shoal is within the Philippines' exclusive economic zone (EEZ). "We have reasons to hold them (China) accountable but we must pursue it the diplomatic way," the senator told dzBB.
