[WATCH] Carpio on why PH claims over Bajo de Masinloc, Spratlys are ‘strongest’
Retired Supreme Court senior justice Antonio Carpio presents this in a lecture titled 'Philippine Island Territories in the West Philippine Sea'

MANILA, Philippines – Retired Supreme Court senior justice Antonio Carpio, among the country’s foremost experts on the West Philippine Sea, delivered a new lecture on Tuesday, October 10.

Carpio presented, for the first time, a lecture titled “Philippine Island Territories in the West Philippine Sea” as part of the magisterial lecture series organized by the University of the Philippines College of Law Constitutional Law Cluster and Justice George Malcolm Foundation, Incorporated, in cooperation with the Integrated Bar of the Philippines Law Journal.

In the lecture, Carpio argues – through maps, treaties, and even China’s own documents and publications – why China’s claims over the Spratlys have no basis, and why the Philippines’ claims hold the most weight. – Rappler.com
