‘Bring China to court’: Carpio prods Philippines to protest Sino bullying of Pinoy fishermen
MetadataShow full item record
Acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio on Friday said the Philippines could use video of the Chinese Coast Guard apparently raiding Filipino fishermen’s catch in Scarborough Shoal, inside the country’s exclusive economic zone, to bring another complaint before the Permanent Court of Arbitration. The PCA had already ruled in favor of the Philippines in 2016 after finding that Beijing’s claims in the area were “excessive.” “We can bring another case against China for not abiding with the ruling,” Carpio told reporters after speaking at a program marking the Supreme Court’s 117th anniversary.
