Chinese survey ship defies PRRD order, re-enters PH EEZ sans notice

A Chinese survey ship which was earlier tracked to have been operating within the country's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) has re-entered our territorial waters without informing authorities in an apparent defiance to President Duterte's order.

August 21, 2019 Martinson was the one who also disclosed Zhangjian’s first sighting last August 6 about 80 nautical miles off the country’s east coast. Earlier this week, Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said the President had issued a warning to all foreign vessels that they must seek a clearance from concerned authorities first before passing through the country’s territorial waters.

According to Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, foreign vessels are not required to seek prior permission or notification when passing through a coastal state’s territorial sea or archipelagic waters under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). However, it was also stated in Article 40 of UNCLOS that foreign ships, including marine scientific research and hydrographic survey ships, “may not carry out any research or survey activities without the prior authorization of the States bordering straits” during a transit passage. “We will see what we can do. Huwag muna tayong mag-ano ngayon ng plano. Pag-aralan muna natin (Let us not make a move now. Let us study this case first.) We will get experts to interpret the UNCLOS,” Lorenzana said.
