Oral arguments in the Supreme Court on GRP-MILF MOA-AD (Aug 22 ’08)

The memorandum of agreement on ancestral domain would, if signed, give the MILF a status of belligerency, said former UP dean Pacifico Agabin. During the day-long hearing, the justices asked if the earlier plebiscites could be considered a form of consultation, and challenged some of the lawyers about their right to represent their clients. Notes to follow later.
