Philippines' plan to sell its Japanese real estate hits a wall

Premium properties seen as 'symbol of Filipino blood' from World War II

This property, located in Shibuya, Tokyo, was handed over to the Philippines after World War II as part of a war reparations package.

MANILA -- Government leaders in the Philippines are speaking out against a plan to sell several properties that the country owns in Japan.

The issue came to light in August when Foreign Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. suddenly tweeted his opposition to a "plot" that had recently resurfaced to sell the real estate.
