Batongbacal slams Panelo thru Twitter wordplay
Maritime law expert Jay Batongbacal has some funny takes on issues involving Philippine territory.
On Twitter, the staunch defender of the country’s sovereignty over the West Philippine Sea, took a jab at presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo.
In his tweets, he would call Panelo as “Sec. Papelo,” and would slam the official for his comments involving China and our territorial waters.
Like this response to Panelo’s comment on the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone issue:
Sabi ni Sec Papelo, “move on” na raw tayo sa EEZ issue.
Siguro, para maka-“move in” na ang China.

Or this wordplay over Panelo’s dismissive comment on the West Philippine Sea:
Sabi ni Sec Papelo, “shut up!” na sa WPS.
Siguro, para masigurado na “shut out” na ang Pinas sa WPS.
