Former Foreign Affairs Sec Albert del Rosario and former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales accused Chinese President Xi Jinping of "crimes against humanity" before the International Criminal Court.

Manila's former top officials said Xi was trying to seize control of the South China Sea. It was Del Rosario who pushed the Philippines' arbitration case against China, which was won after he stepped down.

The new filing came ahead of the effectivity of Philippines' formal withdrawal from the ICC, of which China is not a member.
