Help! Lacson can’t find ‘friends’ in Charter provision on marine wealth

0 323

Giving the country’s so called friends access to its rich marine resources is not found in the Constitution.

Senator Panfilo Lacson pointed this out as he sought the public’s help to find the word “friends” in the constitutional provision about the Filipinos’ exclusive use of the country’s marine wealth.

“Somebody please help me find the word ‘friends’ below: Art XII. Sec 2 (para 2) – The State shall protect the nation’s marine wealth in its archipelagic waters, territorial sea, and exclusive economic zone, and reserve its use and enjoyment exclusively to Filipino citizens,” he tweeted.

He made the comment after President Duterte has allowed China to fish in the country’s exclusive economic zone due to the friendship with the Philippines.
