All in the past? Hilbay remembers briefing Duterte after Hague ruling

Sharing is caring!

Two years after the historic ruling of the International Tribunal Court on the West Philippine Sea dispute, where the Philippines won against China, former solicitor general Florin Hilbay remembered the day he spoke with President Duterte about our victory.

After Hilbay received the good news from The Hague, he was tasked to brief the President in Malacanang that same day.

“At 5 pm of 12 July 2016, as former counsel to the Republic, I received by email the decision in Philippines vs. China. I browsed the decision quickly and concluded we won on all major points. At 7pm, I and some others were asked to brief the President. The rest is history,” Hilbay posted on Twitter, along with his photo with the President taken during the meeting.

But wasn’t the win left only for history now?
