Tom Villarin thinks Duterte is committing treason with this agreement


President Rodrigo Duterte should drop talks on the Code of Conduct in the South China Sea, according to this politiko.

Former Akbayan Rep. Tom Villarin could not understand why Duterte was so keen on signing an agreement with fellow Southeast Asian states and China regarding a common way to interact in the disputed waters, which has long been claimed by Beijing but debunked by The Hague.

“This is treason as signing this Code practically rejects the win in the Arbitral ruling on UNCLOS!,” he said, asking for Duterte’s ouster anew.
