Atty. Rivera Lectures Rep. Villarin on the Importance of Pres. Xi Jinping's State Visit to the Philippines

Veteran San Beda Lawyer and prominent political analyst Atty. Bruce Rivera lectured Akbayan Partylist Representative Tom Villarin on his statement against the state visit of Chinese Pres. Xi Jinping to the country from November 20-21, 2018.



Rep. Tom Villarin of the partylist group Akbayan criticized the Duterte administration for the preparations made by the Philippines in the highly anticipated state visit of the Chinese President.



Rep. Villarin was quoted as saying "The visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping to the Philippines on November 20-21, 2018 is ain to a conquering emperor being accorded all the dignities by its vassal state." Villarin stated.

The Akbayan Partylist Representative added further that "Tayo na yata ang bansang sinamantala na, pinupuri pa at pinaparangalan ang nananamantala. It's disgraceful that we have stooped so low and allowed this assault on our sovereignty and dignity." Rep. Villarin stated.

The statement of the Akbayan Representative caught the attentions of Atty. Bruce Rivera who answered Villarin by lecturing the lawmaker.

According to Atty. Bruce Rivera, Rep. Villarin should know the real concept of a state visit to the Philippines by any head of state and they should be accorded well by the host country.

The veteran lawyer explained that the accommodations extended by the Duterte admin to Pres. Xi Jinping is also the same accommodations accorded by the Philippines to any head of state visiting the country. As a lawmaker, Rep. Villarin should know the real protocol in a state visit.



Here's the Complete Lecture of Atty. Bruce Rivera to Rep. Villarin:

HAY NAKU....

Palagi ko naiinterview itong si Rep. Villarin kaso talagang hindi ko kaya ang mga sinabi niya. Kailangan sagutin.

Sir, una sa lahat, hindi ko alam bakit hindi mo nakuha ang concept ng state visit. Kailangan natin asikasuhin ang head of state na iniimbita natin. Anong gusto mo, imbitabin natin tapos pagdating sa airport, itetext ni PRD si Xi Jing Ping na mag-Grab na lang puntang Malacañan. Cong., kahit mahirap lang tayong bansa, hindi naman tayo mga balasubas at bastos. Bilang Congressman, nakakasulasok na hindi mo alam ang salitang "protocol".

Pangalawa, we extend the same level of pageantry to any head of state na bibisita. Nakalimutan mo na ba kung paano tayo naghanda sa state visit ng Presidente ng Mexico tapos biglang walang PNoy na nagpakita at si Kris ang pinasundo breaking all protocol.



Pangatlo, di ba left leaning ka? Dapat masaya ka na friendship natin ang China kasi you share the same political ideology of socialism/communism. The last time I checked, ang ayaw ng Makabayan ay US imperialism.

Pangatlo, kahit pa nga magkaaway ang dalawang bansa, it is incumbent upon the receiving state to give a head of state the right to safe passage and given all the diplomatic immunities and privileges. Hindi mo din ba alam ito?

Ito na lang dare ko. Kung gusto mong bastusin ang mga sinabi mong nananamantala, bakit hindi ikaw ang mismong gumawa nito para masubukan natin ang tapang mo.

Kung magagawa mo, ililibre kita ng siomai at hakao sa Binondo.
