Philippine fishermen Vs China Coast Guard: Duterte's failed pledge

(Updated: )

Under Rodrigo Duterte's presidency, Philippine fishermen in the disputed Scarborough Shoal have continued to face harassment by China's coast guard patrols, despite the international court's ruling that China had no historic rights to the area.

Independent pollster Social Weather Stations in June 2018 showed 81% of Filipinos as unhappy over their government’s inaction against China’s activities.
