Carpio agrees with Duterte on need to defend PH interest in West Philippine Sea

President Rodrigo Duterte has taken a correct position on the need to defend the Philippines' interest in the West Philippine Sea (WPS), acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio said Monday. However, Carpio, who attended the President's third State of the Nation Address (Sona), said he was hoping the President would elaborate on how the government will protect its interest in the West Philippine Sea. "How do we regain our sovereign rights? How do we defend it," Carpio asked. "I was hoping that he would elaborate on how we will protect our sovereign rights in the West Philippine Sea because I think everybody agrees [that] we have to protect our sovereignty," he added.

Spell out China strategy in Sona, Carpio tells Duterte

President Duterte should spell out in his State of the Nation Address (Sona) on Monday his strategy on the territorial dispute with China after a Social Weather Stations (SWS) poll found that 9 of 10 Filipinos wanted the Philippines to recover its islands in the West Philippine Sea that Beijing had seized, acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio said on Sunday. "I think this is a message to the Duterte administration that they have to listen to the people and that they cannot set aside the arbitral ruling," Carpio said. "This is really overwhelming. The Filipino people don't buy the appeasement policy that if we enforce the arbitral ruling, it means war [with China]," he said.

Puno: Proposed federal charter expands meaning of human rights

To ease concerns about the disappearance of "human rights" from the Declaration of Principles and State Policies in the proposed federal Constitution, former Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato Puno said the definition of the concept was actually expanded in the draft Charter.   Puno, chair of the consultative committee created by President Duterte to revise the 1987 Constitution, on Saturday said critics were merely "nitpicking" about the omission of the term.   "In our draft Constitution, we actually broadened the definition of human rights," he said in a symposium organized by Partido Federal ng Pilipinas.

Davide questions non-mention of West Philippine Sea in draft Charter

"Why not clearly mention the West Philippine Sea? [Is it] because of the administrative fear of or love for China?" This was the question posed by former Chief Justice Hilario Davide Jr., one of the framers of the 1987 Constitution, during the Senate hearing on the proposed Charter change (Cha-cha). Davide pointed out that the West Philippine Sea was not mentioned in the draft federal Constitution produced by President Rodrigo Duterte's Consultative Commission (Con-con) tasked to review the present charter. "It deliberately did not mention the name West Philippine Sea but it specifically mentioned the Philippine Rise. Yet, it specifically mentions by name the Philippine Rise," h...Keep on reading: Davide questions non-mention of West Philippine Sea in draft Charter.....»»

President’s stand on sea row needs review – Carpio

The recent Social Weather Stations poll showing that four of five Filipinos rebuffed the government's approach to the territorial dispute with China proved that President Rodrigo Duterte's policy was contrary to the public's position, acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio said on Sunday. Carpio, who champions the country's sovereignty over the West Philippine Sea --- waters within the Philippines' 370-kilometer exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the South China Sea --- said the latest poll also signaled the need for the Duterte administration to rethink its stand on the dispute. "The Filipino people understand the situation that . . . we have to protect our sovereign rights and we ...Keep on reading: President’s stand on sea row needs review – Carpio.....»»

Published: 8:59 a.m., July 10, 2018 | Updated: 1:09 a.m., July 11, 2018 President Rodrigo Duterte may have chosen to set aside an international tribunal ruling that invalidated China's claim to nearly all of the South China Sea, but the world's naval powers are enforcing it, according to acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio. "There is clearly enforcement of a core part of the award by the world's naval powers, even if there is inexplicable reluctance on the part of the Duterte administration to enforce the award," Carpio said on Monday at a forum in Manila ahead of the second anniversary of the July 12, 2016, ruling by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague.
