MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines is gearing up for the next round of its legal battle with China before the international arbitral tribunal over the West Philippine Sea, with hearings on the merits of Manila's case against Beijing set on Nov. 24-30. "The preparation for the second round of argumentation has been going from the time that we had formally filed our memorial," deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a press briefing yesterday. Valte said the same law firm would represent the country in the second round, apparently referring to the Boston-based law firm Foley Hoag led by lawyer Paul Reichler.
