Alvarez wants zero budget for Commision On Human Right's

August 08, 2017

If Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez had his manner, the fee on Human Rights (CHR) should to have zero allocation for the national budget next year.

“Kung ako ang tatanungin ninyo e, zero kapag ganyan ang performance. Bakit? Hindi natin ia-abolish kasi constitutional budget, eh di wag mong bigyan ng budget yan,” Alvarez told reporters after the congressional budget hearing for the CHR on Monday.

Alvarez, a staunch ally of President Duterte, slammed the company for supposedly defending criminals, who become sufferers of extra-judicial killings within the call of the administration’s drug war

He chided the CHR for maintaining mum on harmless civilians victimized with the aid of those criminals.

“Itong ating Commission on Human Rights ay ang pino-focus lang ay yung mga karapatan ng criminal at tipong wala silang pakialam dun sa karapatan nung mga biktima nitong mga criminal na ito,” he said.

“Matagal ko nang inoobserbahan ito na tuwing merong mga massacre na ginagawa itong mga criminals, itong mga drug addicts, tahimik sila,” he said.

“Parang Pasko sa kanila yun—yung Silent Night—walang comment,” he said.

“May mga insidente na may namatay at mayroon silang pagdududa na eto ay extra-judicial killing na ginawa nung ating mga [pulis] ay talagang maingay sila. Eh bakit naman gano’n? Akala ko ba ’yung human rights ay para sa lahat. Ay bakit namimili sila ng pinoprotektahan at inaalagaan na karapatan?” Alvarez added.

“If it is a civilian or private person who did the crime, such as killing or rape, it is the Philippine National Police (PNP) who has the duty and mandate to take action,” it said.

The CHR had stressed usually in the past that its mandate changed into to make certain that there might be no abuse or negligence at the a part of the government in protecting and upholding the rights of all of the citizens, especially the marginalized.
