Carpio literally laughs off Panelo’s tirade
As the old saying goes, “Never regret anything that made you smile, (uh laugh).”
Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio on Wednesday laughed off presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo’s description of him as “unpatriotic.”
“Hahaha,” Carpio said in a SMS when journalists sought his comment on Panelo’s remark.
“That’s my comment,” Carpio said.
Earlier, Carpio disclosed that China could seize the country’s gas reserves in gas-rich Reed Bank if it is unable to pay its US$62-million loan for the Chico River Pump Irrigation Project.
Carpio noted a provision in the loan agreement in which the Philippines waived its immunity to its patrimonial assets and assets dedicated to commercial use.
