  • South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Philippine fishermen claim continued Chinese harassment on South China Sea” – below is their description.

    Five years since The Hague’s Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled China had no historic claims on the South China Sea, Philippine fishermen say they are still being harassed by Chinese coastguards in the disputed waters. The international tribunal also ruled that China had interfered with the Philippines’ traditional fishing rights at Scarborough Shoal and breached Manila’s sovereign rights near the Reed Bank. China says the 2016 ruling is illegal and invalid. Philippine fishermen are calling on their government to provide them with better protection.
