Justice prods Palace to assert PH rights over Benham
MetadataShow full item record
Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio has rebuffed the position of Malacanang that there is nothing wrong with China naming undersea features in the Philippine Rise. China, Carpio said, has no right to name the undersea features in the area because the Philippines has the preferential right to do so after it was declared part of the country’s territory.
