Journalist Reveals the Reasons Why the Alleged Yellow Ploy of Writ Backfires


Veteran journalist and columnist Ninez Cacho-Olivares revealed some of the most important reasons why the alleged yellow ploy using the Writ of Kalikasan backfires.


According to Olivares the intent of the writ, is to get the Supreme Court to order Pres. Rody Duterte and his administration to enforce the Permanent Court of Arbitration's (PCA) ruling favoring the Philippines, but that court could not order enforced.



Due to the numerous questions posed by the SC Justices to the fishermen's counsels, the IBP officers and lawyers, it just doesn't appear to be an easy fight for the Palawan fishers and their lawyers to get the Supreme Court to order Pres. Duterte to enforce  the PCA ruling which the arbitral court itself cannot enforce.

Some associate justices noted the fact that the Writ of Kalikasan plea failed to name as respondents previous government officials, which would naturally point to the yellow President and his administration officials who should have been included as writ respondents.

Especially as the disputed West Philippine Sea already showed that when it came to action from the Philippine side, the Aquino government officials turned tail and left the area where the Chinese ship had arrived and stayed there for sometime even after the Philippine military vessel left the area.



The fishermen's counsel, Atty. Chel Diokno, had a very very weak response to this, saying that petitioners named officials in the Duterte administration as respondents since they are the ones heading the agencies now.
