China is dredging 10 reefs to provide filling material for artificial islands that it is building on seven reefs in the West Philippine Sea, Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio disclosed on Wednesday.

Carpio, at the forum “Perspectives on Issues Involving the West Philippine Sea” held in Camp Aguinaldo, spoke about the extent of China’s land reclamation activities and the legal implications of these on countries with territorial claims in the strategic waterway.

Besides the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam and Taiwan also claim parts of the South China Sea, 90 percent of which China insists is part of its territory.
