My brother-in-law can’t help being the professor that he is. This morning, he excitedly told me that he had finished a short piece on how to read the 501-page ruling.
Has he read it, I asked him, because I wanted him to write about it. He said he would need to print out everything first in order to examine it page by page. That’s how thorough he is.
Meanwhile, he’d like to share this guide with his former International Studies students and with anyone who is interested to wade through this formidable ruling, which China has dismissed as “garbage” and mere scraps of paper.
I was lucky enough to get Professor Jose Maria Sison’s reaction to the ruling. But not those of former President Benigno Aquino III and former Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario :(
I will post Sison’s reaction separately, as well as what Chinese experts are saying about this momentous issue. – raissa
