#CHexit: Philippines wins case vs China




In a landmark ruling, today July 12, 2016, the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) based in The Hague Netherlands ruled in favor of the Philippines against China over territorial disputes at the West Philippine Sea.

In a press release, the PCA concluded that:

…as between the Philippines and China, there was no legal basis for China to claim historic rights to resources, in excess of the rights provided for by the Convention, within the sea areas falling within the ‘nine-dash line’,

#CHexit or “China, exit” was a trending topic on Twitter after the release of the ruling.

    Final Verdict: China is GUILTY of violating international laws on protection of the environment, the UNCLOS (of which it is a signatory), and estoppel.

    Now, are we going to rush over to the SCS to reclaim our territory? No way. There is new news that OUR Phil Embassy in Beijing has been LOCKED DOWN by Chinese authorities. We don’t yet why, but we have to go easy on this…. And we should also allow our President to take the best course of action open to us… international diplomacy.
