Ado Paglinawan: Justice Antonio Carpio's Lies Continues But Slipping Tongues Hints Towards Truth

A concerned netizen identified as Ado Paglinawan revealed on his social media account some interestin information about Acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio accusing the SC Justice of continue peddling lies, but Carpio's tongue slips hinting towards the truth.


Paglinawan revealed that in an interview with ANC, Acting Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Antonio Carpio corrected his interviewer saying it is "incorrect to refer to the areas in the South China Sea formerly contested by the Philippines and China as 'disputed'"

The Former Press Attache at the Philippine Embassy in Washington stated that as early as July 2015, when BS Aquino was still president and Albert del Rosario was busy lawyering in the Permanent Arbritration at The Hague, Paglinawan published a book entitled "Problem for Every Solution."



The first sentence of Paglinawan's book read, "We have a common claim to the islands and China has a conflicting solution. In international law, this is called territorial dispute." According to Paglinawan, the entire bone of contention in this whole controversy is based on single word "dispute" and not China's "nine-dash line" doctrine that contests our claim based on UNCLOS' 200-nautical mile designation of our EEZ.

Here's the Complete Statement of Ado Paglinawan:

LIES CONTINUE, BUT CARPIO'S TONGUE SLIPS HINTING TOWARDS THE TRUTH.

In an interview with ANC yesterday, Acting Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Antonio Carpio corrected his interviewer saying it is "incorrect to refer to the areas in the South China Sea formerly contested by the Philippines and China as 'disputed'."

As early as July 2015, when BS Aquino was still president and Albert del Rosario was still busy lawyering for the Americans in the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague, I published in Washington DC, a book entitled A Problem for Every Solution. (For a copy, text 0917-336-4366).



The first sentence of the first chapter read, "We have a common claim to the islands and China has a conflicting solution. In international law, this is called territorial dispute."

The entire bone of contention in this whole controversy is based on single word "dispute" and not China's "nine-dash line" doctrine that contests our claim based on UNCLOS' 200-nautical mile designation of our EEZ.

The "dispute" does not rise out of the fact that the rule of convention upholds us but historical claims support China. In fact in 1405, the Sultanate of Sulu signed a Treaty of Tributary Independent States with China, making us its protectorate.

However, it is necessary for Carpio to continue lying.

"Don't say that because the tribunal has already ruled with finality. There’s no appeal. We’re the owners of the resources there. There is no legal dispute as to the ownership of oil, fish, and gas. It belongs exclusively to the Philippines. The only problem is how to get China to comply," he said

1. Obviously he was referring to the award in favor of the Philippines by the Permanent Court of Arbitration. But the PCA's ruling was as fictitious as arbitration process itself. 

How can an arbitration occur with one party involved? Only the Philippines. 

China did not participate in the tribunal proceedings. Thus, the PCA was far from being arbitral, but truly unilateral. 

2. The second lie is that the PCA ruled with "finality".

The tribunal has no enforcement capability. In arbitration, implementing the arbitral ruling, belongs to the parties that brought the case before it. I am bordering on the ridiculous here because since only the Philippines was involved in the arbitration, with what will the Philippines implement it? 

The acting justice of the Supreme Court cannot not know that the PCA is a private arbitral body. To say that a magistrate of his level does not know this, is tantamount to admitting incompetence or lack of intellectual integrity.

Certainly he has not been misled into thinking the PCA is the International Court of Justice. The PCA is not the ICJ, they only share the same building for their offices.

Carpio forgot that on July 7, 2015, he made a fool of himself in an interview by Rappler where he said "China, like US in old case, will comply with ruling". He was of course referring to an ICJ case which Nicaragua won over the US. But at that point, I think he was more ignorant than lying. 

The US simply ignored Nicaragua. And had it appealed to the Security Council for enforcement, US would still prevail because the US has veto power in the council.

3. The truth is there was no finality in the PCA. How can there be a finality when China, like the US, also has a veto power in the Security Council? The issue therefore is not a matter of appeal but futility. The PCA caper, in latin was "exercitium futilis", a worthless practice. China will always have the final say. 

4. Even granting "arguando", that Carpio is correct, the state of dispute is not just in matters of law, but on ground zero. China has occupied, seven islands, and exercises control and administration over the islands, including the capacity to defend it against any counteraction, amicably or through the use of superior force. 

That, in international law is the definition of "sovereignty". 

And no matter how Carpio quibbles, and maybe even on the meanwhile that it is "de facto", pray tell me how in heavens name will the Philippines eject them from the area?

5. That is why it is necessary for Carpio to continue the lie.

The reason is the only power that can challenge this de facto situation is the United Sates. But the US has already failed twice in this issue. It did not challenge China in the Scarborough standoff. It did not do anything, at the least "blockade" the supply ships that were carrying soil to reclaim the seven islands in contention.

The problem is that by its own laws and tradition, the US is inhibited from interfering in "territorial" disputes of other countries. You can find this on page 15 of my book. There is also a huge Wikipedia explanation about on US non-interventionism. 

And even if its intelligence operatives could be licensed to violate its own law and intervene on the ground - Thomas Lum of the Congressional Research Service, the organic think tank of the US legislature wrote "The Manila Declaration did not lay out specifically the circumstances which the United States would defend Philippine claims in the South China Seas."

The only way it can intervene is with the canine cooperation of our country. So the US delicately laid out a "lawfare" strategy with the collusion of BS Aquino III. The pre-staging was what the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement was all about. 

EDCA formally installed the Philippines as proxy. Putting this into the world's consciousness came by way of the US donation of the destroyer RPS Alcaraz to the Philippine Navy.

The drama at the Permanent Court of Arbitration was designed to define the terms of forward engagement. But this can only be effective if the Philippines continue the subservient foreign policy championed by former foreign affairs secretary Albert del Rosario as the chief architect. 

The PCA could not come out with a decision within Aquino's term. The loss of Mar Roxas, his presidential candidate in the 2016 elections was therefore catastrophic to the American pivot. 

When the ruling finally occurred, the winning president Rodrigo Roa Duterte had already announced adopting an independent foreign policy pursuing bilateral talks to deal with China. 

As Plan B, the former secretary of foreign affairs put up the Albert del Rosario Institute (ADRI)- Stratbase, heavily financed by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the Washington DC-based think tank that began the baby steps in 1982 that led to removal of President Ferdinand Marcos in 1986.

ADRI conducts a monthly forum that maintains the decible of the PCA caper at highest levels. 

Carpio leads the group of talking heads to keep the fiction alive. Jay Batongbacal of the UP Institute for Maritime Affairs and Law of the Sea, lawyer Florin Hilbay, former NSA Roilo Golez have their own versions to echo. Richard Heydarian used to be front act, until for some reason he moved to Singapore to pitch from that location. 

Alan Robles of the South China Morning Post, his wife Raissa and daughter-in-law Pia-Ranada of Rappler, together with ABS-CBN and Inquirer are avid outlets of their fake news.

In the US, Loida Nicolas-Lewis allegedly funds penetration of the ADRI propaganda into the New York Times, Time magazine, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal, that continuously poison the US intelligence agencies.because 90% of intel reports are derived from overt newsclips. 

The fastest way to discern the propaganda is centered on one liner - calling the PCA as "UN-backed", "UN-sanctioned", "UN-supported" agency.
