I suggest that they file an impeachment and let’s see if they are right.” 

This is what Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III said in an interview when asked about an impeachment case against President Rodrigo Duterte if he indeed violated the Constitution by allowing China to fish in the exclusive economic zone (EZZ) of the Philippines.

(I think it would) be a very good test case that it is a constitutional violation,” he said.

It’s very difficult to say that there’s exclusivity when its under water,” he pointed out.

He explained that there are fish that can only found in China but could be seen in the Philippines probably because of migration.

The fish could be coming from China, and the fish from the Philippines could be going to China if we want to be technical about it and relate it to the constitutionality of what should be owned by us.”

Sotto also said that there is nothing wrong in allowing Chinese people or other nations to fish in the EEZ of the Philippines.

As long as we’re allowed to fish also in their zones, then I don’t see anything wrong because they will treat us  as friends likewise,” Sotto said.
