Spox Harry Roque scolds UP prof like a child, who says Duterte’s joint exploration proposal with China

When President Duterte named Harry Roque as the new Presidential spokesman, Roque vowed to throw hollow blocks at critics of the Duterte administration.

The presidential spokesman has yet to make good of that promise, until recently.

During a press conference, Roque gave UP professor Jay Batongbacal public dressing down after saying that the joint exploration with China in the Spratly is unconstitutional.

Eva: “Please expound/clarify your statement yesterday, supposed joint exploration with China under EEZ 57. Exploration under that contract is not joint as the Chinese company is a subcontractor of the Philippines also, SC 57 is not a disputed area and therefore is not for joint exploration. Is considering joint exploration for EEZ 57 allowed if there was no prior claim with China? Maritime professor Jay Batongbacal says agreeing to jointly explore EEZ 57 elevating the status of the Chinese contractor as a co-owner of our EEZ CS areas. Comment on this please.”

An obviously irritated Spox Harry Roque wasted no time in throwing hollow blocks towards the direction of lawyer Jay Batongbacal.

“Ay nako nadesisyon na po iyan ng ating Korte Suprema sa kaso ng La Bugal. Ang problema sa mga kritiko ng administrasyon, nasi nila maging justices ng Supreme Court. Mag-antay muna kayo matalaga diyan at mag-antay kayo may kapangyarihan gumawa ng desisyon. Malinaw po ang La Bugal. Ang joint exploration po ay pinapayagan sa ating Saligang Batas basta alinsunod ito sa isang kontrata na nilagdaan ng Presidente at isusumite sa Kongreso.Yung mga napipilit po na ipinagbabawal ay mag-antay po kayo ng bagong desisyon ng Korte Suprema. Ang desisyon po ngayon ang batas na umiiral ay sinulat po ni dating Chief Justice Panganiban. Constitutional po ang mga joint exploration doon sa area na walang dispute gaya ng 57 at sa mga area na may dispute, gaya ng 72. Ang rekomendasyon ko po kay Professor Batongbacal – magbasa ng desisyon ng Korte Suprema bago magbigay ng opinyon.”

Roque to UP Professor na ‘Nag Mamarunong’ — “Read before you give an opinion.”

Hindi na hollow-block ang tinapon ni Roque kay UP Professor Jay Batungbaka. Hinampas ni Roque si Batungbakal. Shiyetttt! Imagine being told in public "Read Supreme Court decisions before making an opinion." How embarrassing! Nagmamarunong kasi! LOL! SPOX, 'yo da beast! 😀
