Andanar says UNHRC need not probe PH rights situation

CALOOCAN CITY, Aug. 30 (PIA) -- Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar said over the weekend that there is no need for the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to look into the human rights situation in the Philippines.

Andanar issued the statement amid 62 civil society organizations have urged the UNHRC to launch an immediate and independent “international investigative mechanism” on the supposed human rights violations committed in the Philippines since 2016.

“The Philippines’ human rights situation does not merit any external investigative mechanism being called for on the basis of specific cases where investigations are ongoing,” Andanar said .

A joint letter dated Aug. 27 and addressed to the UNHRC revealed that some 62 civil society groups expressed their “continued grave concern” over the alleged “ongoing extrajudicial executions and other serious human rights violations in the context of the 'war on drugs' in the Philippines”.

The groups alleged that the acts were caused by “incitement to violence and discrimination by the highest levels of government with near-total impunity”.

Among the organizations that have asked the UNHRC to carry out an independent international investigative mechanism on the Philippines’ human rights situation include: Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Asean Parliamentarians for Human Rights, Free Legal Assistance Group, Karapatan, National Union of Journalists of the Philippines, and Reporters Without Borders. 

However, Andanar countered them and said the Duterte administration, through the publication of the Philippine Human Rights Situationer, has already presented “thorough and scrupulous" information on the human rights situation in the Philippines.

“Apart from this, we have rigorously addressed allegations of human rights violations in the Human Rights Council and in other relevant fora. We believe that these engagements at all levels have been useful in presenting the real human rights situation in the country and the context on the ground,” the official said.

Andanar also ensured that the Phlippines have already been in place “well-established and functioning accountability mechanisms.”

He added that the current administration maintains its commitment and international obligation of enhancing and strengthening structures aimed at upholding human rights and the rule of law in the country.

“The administration has ensured the steady increase of public budgets to strengthen these structures, as a key pillar of its good governance agenda. This includes the increase of the budget of the Commission of Human Rights (CHR), an independent human rights institution in the past three years,” Andanar said.

He then appealed to civil society and the international community to support the Duterte administration’s efforts in protecting human rights in the Philippines and said the government is also open to engaging all parties to address allegations of human rights violations in the country within the framework of the domestic accountability mechanisms.

“We recognize that the advancement of government’s constructive cooperation with the CHR, civil society, and international partners, including the United Nations will be important as we further promote the comprehensive facets of human rights, accountability, and rule of law in the Philippines,” Andanar said.

Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.
