‘We’re both lawyers’: Duterte challenges Carpio to debate on WPS issue
By: Gabriel Pabico Lalu - Reporter / @GabrielLaluINQINQUIRER.net / 02:05 AM May 06, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte challenged on Wednesday former Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio to a debate on the West Philippine Sea, particularly on the 2016 ruling of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague that favored the Philippines over China.

In his pre-recorded briefing that aired on Wednesday, Duterte said had only two or three questions for Carpio: Who made the Philippine Navy retreat from the area? What did the administration of then-President Benigno Aquino III do about it? You filed a case and we won. Can we enforce that?

“This Carpio, he keeps writing about the decision but it’s all for his own mind. He’s stupid [ugok].  So you were a Supreme Court justice? We’re both lawyers. You want us to debate?” Duterte said in Filipino.

MANILA, Philippines — The much touted face-off between President Rodrigo Duterte and retired Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio may not materialize after the Chief Executive assigned his spokesperson to represent him in a debate over the issue on the Philippines’ legal victory over China’s claims in the West Philippine Sea.

Duterte has designated Atty. Harry Roque to face Carpio on whether the country may enforce the 2016 ruling of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague in favor of the country, amid recent incursions of China in contested waters, which critics claimed undermined the country’s sovereignty.

This, despite that it was Duterte himself who challenged Carpio to a debate over the West Philippine Sea, which the former magistrate already accepted.
