[Photo/Xinhua]The arbitration tribunal in the South China Sea dispute has explained the case in an irresponsible way and set a bad precedent, according to law professionals and scholars on international law from around the world.The decision in the case, which was initiated unilaterally by the Philippines despite Chinas objection, is to be announced on Tuesday by the Arbitral Tribunal at The Hague.Abdul Gadire Koroma, a Sierra Leonean who served two terms as judge at the International Court of Justice, said “the tribunal is not entitled to decide” questions concerning territorial sovereignty.Myron Nordquist, a senior fellow at the Center for National Security Law at the University of Virginia School of Law, said “the arbitration sets a bad precedent with its award on jurisdiction”.”There is no way to guarantee the effectiveness of the Article 298 declarations except to honor the text which, despite my deep respect for the tribunal members and their good faith, was not done in this arbitration,” said Nordquist.Article 298 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea excludes compulsory arbitration on issues including maritime boundaries. In 2006, China declared it would exercise its rights under Article 298.”They have already shown so much prejudice (against China),” Nordquist said.In an earlier interview with China Daily, Nordquist also said he thought the United States is behind the Philippines efforts to stir up the situation.”They want to get back to those military bases. You know they got kicked out of quite a few of those places.”He said the ruling is likely to be bad for China. “Its not going to end the problem. Its going to exacerbate it.””I am just not happy. I dont think China is getting a fair shake. I think part of the reason is that people that are being paid a lot of money by the Filipinos are taking advantage of the ignorance of people about this very complicated area.”Previous Page1 2 3 4 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 3 4 Next Page0Related StoriesHow others see South China SeaSouth China Sea Issue ABC: Why the Philippines unilateral initiation of arbitration is against international law?Calming the waters of South China Sea Randy WrightArbitral court not best place for South China Sea dispute settlement: Croatian law expertPhotoUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchEfforts needed for sustainable projects1st Panda cub born in France named Yuan MengFree trade studies agreed on as Li meets with Canadian PM TrudeauChina-JapanChina-USChina-AfricaChina-EuropeLi tells Japanese business leaders its time for bilateral cooperationChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationGroup of lawmakers visit notorious Yasukuni Shrine in JapanJapan can offer experience, expat saysChina-Japan ties seen at dialogue as benefit to regionChina, Japan officials exchange views on security issues at 15th dialogueChinese music finds new foothold in United StatesC919 flies toward air worthinessPolitical leaders: Sino-US relations to growChina vows steps after US launches probe into aluminum tradeGates is added to top-tier Chinese academyYao helps AB InBev fight alcohol abuseAction urged over pollutionUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityChina vows to deepen bilateral ties with new Zimbabwe govtChinese, African parties meet to share wisdom on modernization2nd China-Africa Investment Forum begins in MoroccoLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchPeak performance by Chinese nurse on Scotlands mountains9-month festival of Chinese art, heritage to be staged in Liverpool, UK, next yearChina eyes closer economic, trade cooperation with BelarusPremier calls to enhance trade liberalization and facilitation in SCOPremier: China to advance production capacity with UzbekistanAsia PacificUS & CanadaEuropeAfricaMiddle EastChinese tourists go to South KoreaChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingBelt and Road a great opportunity: Uzbek officialKwaussie wins Australias word of the yearJapan can offer experience, expat saysTrudeau visits Sina WeiboChina, Canada agree to issue joint statement on climate changeDemocrats stand united against GOP tax billUS quits talks on global migration pactTensions triggered over possible moveSino-Canadian bilateral trade ties to deepen furtherMay gets little gasp as EU extends deadline for sufficient progress in Brexit talksRussia banned from Pyeongchang Winter OlympicsGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchBoth first ladies name panda cub Yuan MengLiu Yandong heralds bilateral cooperation in education and researchEthiopian FM urges strengthened Ethiopia-China tiesUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaAction urged over pollutionBelt and Road Initiative to help countries achieve UN goals: officialChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityMorocco king holds historic talks with South African president in AbidjanYemens ex-president Saleh, relatives killed by HouthisTrump recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital would raise regional tensionsYemen rattled by raids as clashes spreadSquash a perfect match for girl refugees in JordanSyrian talks in Geneva to continue to Dec 15: UN envoyAll parties in Syria urged to join talksMost PopularHot TopicsSouth China SeaEU referendumUS electionG20 summitDPRKIran nuclear talksChina and JapanGreek debt crisisGaza woeRefugee crisisReporters JournalMonks among kaleidoscope of characters facing scrutiny in New YorkEnergy flexibility and reform a breath of fresh air in ChinaDoes China-bashing really help someone reach the White House?HighlightsSouth China Sea issueBritain votes to leave EUSouth China Sea dispute…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
