China is stealing land and sea, with some very valuable mineral rights from Brunei, Japan, Philippines, S.Korea, and Vietnam, and the Philippines is bringing the first case against Xi's government to the Tribunal at the Hague.
MANILA, Philippines - The Arbitral Tribunal of the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague, Netherlands released the full transcript of the oral hearings on the territorial disputes in the West Philippine Sea as requested by the Philippines.
Last July, the Philippines sent a delegation composed of top executives from the three government branches as the United Nations arbitral tribunal opened the arbitration court proceedings on the sea dispute.
The Philippines filed a case against China's excessive maritime claims over the West Philippine Sea or South China Sea, being the first country to challenge its nine-dash line claim.
The arbitral tribunal is set to rule on the case against China over the territorial disputes within the year.
A copy of the full transcript of the three-day hearing on jurisdiction and admissibility can be viewed below.
