Tagalog News: Korte Suprema kinumpirma ang constitutionality ng VFA

Manila (5 March) -- Kinumpirma na ng Korte Suprema ?with finality? ang constitutionality ng kontrobersiyal na RP-US Visiting Forces Agreement, na nagpapahintulot sa mga Amerikano at Pilipinong sundalo na magkaroon ng joint military exercises sa alinmang bahagi ng Pilipinas.

Sa ruling na mayroong botong 9-4, inilahad ng Korte na ang VFA ay duly concurred ng Senado ng Pilipinas at kinilala rin na isang treaty ng bansang Estados Unidos.

Tinukoy ng nasabing ruling ang Section 25, Article XVII ng 1987 Saligang Batas na nagsasabing ang mga foreign military bases o mga tropa at pasilidad ay maaari lamang manatili sa Pilipinas kung mayroong treaty na duly concurred ng Senado at kinikilala rin ng contracting State.

Binigyang diin din ng Korte Suprema na ang VFA na isang instrument agreement na ginawang batayan ng joint RP-US military exercises, ay isa laang simpleng implementing agreement ng RP-US Mutual Defense Treaty. (ac agad PIA 12) [top]
