Morales & Del Rosario, did what Duterte is unwilling to do -Risa Hontiveros




Opposition Senator Rissa Hontiveros thanked former Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario and former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales because they have the balls in filing a case against China, where it should have been the responsibility of the president of the country.

Hontiveros calls the inaction of president Rodrigo Roa Duterte as  "unwilling and unable to undertake" his job for Philippine sovereignty and us Filipinos against China.

Xi and other Chinese officials allegedly committed crimes against humanity in implementing Beijing's "systematic plan to control the South China Sea," Filipino fishermen, former Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario and former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales said in their complaint.

The complainants, Hontiveros said, "provided us with a powerful template of courage as we continue to assert our sovereignty in the West Philippine Sea." 
"They clearly underscored the difference that can be made by standing up against foreign aggression instead of pursuing President Duterte's hollow and treacherous foreign policy," she added. 
The Lady senator also took note of the former Ombudsman role in filing the case against China “"signifies, once more, women's strong and progressive leadership and proves that a woman of principles can do the job a toxic macho can't."
It was during former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III’s term and Del Rosario's time as top Philippine diplomat that the Philippines brought China before a UN-backed arbitral tribunal in 2013 for incursions in the country's exclusive economic zone within the disputed South China Sea.
The UN tribunal, invalidated China's 9-dash line claim over the waters and recognized traditional fishing rights of Filipinos in the Scarborough Shoal, an area where China's patrol ships had countless times shooed away Philippine fishermen.
