    It is laughable that people here blame the Duterte followers when almost every LP congressmen who jumped ship, which greatly outnumbered the PDP party of Duterte before and was the ruling party, voted for the 1000 peso budget for CHR where the chairman was a top LP executive prior to becoming the CHR head.

    Pinapakita lang dito ang pagiging balimbing ng mga kongresman at kapit tuko sa kung sino man ang nakaupong presidente.

    Sino bang "independent" / "neutral" HR lawyer ang pwedeng mag lead/head ng CHR if Gascon indeed decides to step down?

    Lorenzana favors full CHR budget, says it makes AFP, PNP 'careful'

    MANILA, Philippines – Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana on Thursday, September 14, opposed the House of Representatives' grant of a measly P1,000 budget for the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) for 2018.

    Lorenzana said the CHR deserves a full funding as it is a constitutional body.

    “I hope we will reconsider... unless i-abolish yan, you have to support (unless it is abolished, you have to support it). Kasi it’s a constitutional body. Nasa batas yan. Nasa Constitution pa yan e. Dahil nandyan yan, it's just right that there will also be funding,” Lorenzana told reporters after the Senate hearing on the proposed budget of the Department of National Defense.

    This is a stark contrast to the pronouncements of President Rodrigo Duterte and his allies, who have pushed for the abolition of the agency. Lorenzana also earlier supported Duterte's call, saying the military and police already took oath to protect the 1987 Constitution, including the bill of rights.

    Now, Lorenzana said the CHR should not be abolished, at least "not immediately" because it makes the military and the police cautious in their actions.

    “No no, not immediately siguro (maybe),” Lorenzana said.

    “Oo naman [I support]. For one, it makes the government especially the military and police, ano ba, 'yung ingat sila sa ginagawa nila because the rights of another person, liable sila sa human rights violation.” Lorenzana said.

    (Of course I support. For one, it makes the government especially the military and the police cautious in their actions because it involves the rights of another person, they will be liable for human rights violation.)

    The military has been accused of violating human rights amid the declaration of martial law over Mindanao but has denied allegations.

    CHR-AFP good ties?

    Lorenzana said the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the CHR have long had good ties. In fact, the DND chief said he had a “very healthy” relationship with the constitutional office when he was a commander on the ground.

    "When I was the commander, I had a very healthy relationship sa CHR sa region. Iniimbita ko yan pag may (I invite them during) lectures because people should be taught what is human rights. There's a human rights officer in every unit of the AFP down to the company battalion,” he said.,

    “Kung titignan mo ang record namin, very few lang ang human rights violation sa military. Pero meron nagvviolate, nagkakaroon ng kaso,” he said. (If you look at our record, the military only has few human rights violations. But there are some who violate, there are now cases filed.)

    The CHR, which has repeatedly slammed drug-related killings under the Duterte administration, has been the subject of criticism from the President and his allies. It was also the CHR, under now-detained Senator Leila de Lima in 2009, that first investigated Duterte's alleged involvement in the Davao Death Squad.

    Duterte had blamed CHR Chairperson Jose Luis Martin Gascon for the measly budget, saying he overstepped his bounds in actively investigating human rights abuses especially in the ongoing drug war.

    Palitan dapat si Gascon. We can't expect this person to be neutral when in fact he was:

    Long post but my two cents on CHR's budget.

    CHR should definitely not be abolished or given a measly budget. Because the man who runs it is the one who should be abolished, aka Chito Gascon.

    Why?

    There is definitely nothing wrong with the CHR. What is wrong is the path where Gascon is taking the Commission. He is politicizing the agency too much, by making CHR the now powerless opposition's (aka Liberal Party) primary anti-government, anti-drug war watchdog. Why? The Liberal Party is powerless locally and so they are capitalizing instead on the international power of the CHR.

    'Coz anything our local CHR condemns, the world listens.

    While it is true that there were excesses in the drug war involving innocent people being killed along with criminals, calling out those killings is definitely NOT CHR's primary and only function.

    So what is CHR's primary function, then?

    It is to uphold the Declaration of Human Rights, making sure that Human Rights and Dignity is applied to ALL people living under their jurisdiction (the Philippines), criminal or innocents, government officials, even the human rights of our Armed Forces - transcending and above the politics of the land. Just like how Red Cross treat injured combatants of war, whether they are terrorists or not.

    After all, we are all human.

    Scrutinizing any excesses of the Armed Forces is one of their functions, yes. But condemning criminals such as drug crazed maniacs and terrorists commiting brutal crimes against civilians should also have an equal attention as to how they scrutinize the excesses of the government forces.

    Which is definitely NOT happening under Gascon.

    And do you know what is the most rampant human rights violation of all?

    It's not the extra-judicial killings. And it's a far cry.

    It's human trafficking. And the Philippines has one of the highest human trafficking rates in the world.

    One of the core tenets of the Declaration of Human Rights is to eradicate slavery in the world and human trafficking is a form of slavery. Yet all we hear from Gascon is EJK EJK EJK while our Filipinas are being shipped to some clubs in Malaysia and God knows where else, most of them young and forcibly separated from their families.

    I wonder why the "Human Rights Champions" Gascon and Leila are silent on this issue?

    I also condemn those brainless people in the legislative. Threatening to paralize our CHR is very stupid to the core. Does these baboons know that stealing our taxes is also a human rights violation? By stealing public funds, you take food, water and shelter away from the poor.

    Just replace Gascon for heaven's sake. And also Delgra from the LTFRB.


    Good night, world! 😂
