Robredo Uses CHR, Ombudsman to Destroy Bongbong Marcos

Ombudsman





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Vice President Leni Robredo calls on Filipinos to respect constitutional institutions such as the Office of the Ombudsman. This goes the same to the Commission on Human Rights after criticisms are thrown against these agencies. She asks the people to rally behind these bodies. The VP defends Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales after the President warns her. Robredo’s betrayal to the administration she serves only has one reason – Bongbong Marcos.

[VIDEO]: Vice President Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo on Thursday urged Filipinos to speak out and be brave amid the “polarization that’s sweeping across our country.”




Robredo’s Pleas

“We need to respect the mandates of these institutions so that they can perform the duties bestowed upon them. This is to keep the government clean and honest,” Robredo said in a statement. “In spite of the issues they face, the strong will of Filipinos (like in EDSA perhaps) is again needed. Let’s all join together in following our constitution and insist on the democratic approaches of the Ombudsman,” she said.



The President’s Warning vs the Ombudsman

Du30 earlier threatened to form a commission that would investigate the alleged anomalies of the Office of the Ombudsman after the anti-graft agency announced that it was launching a fact-finding probe into his rumored wealth announced by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. He dares the Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales and Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to resign with him.



Attacks Against Du30 are for Marcos

The President is ready to step down anytime for as long as the country won’t go back to the rotten management of the Liberal Party. Bongbong Marcos is the only hope for the Philippines to prosper. His electoral protest against Robredo is due for the recount in November this year. The Liberal media propaganda is already in full force from the Senate to the people’s televisions that can destroy the chances of Marcos through Du30. However, it is evident that there are more social media practitioners who are sensibly pro-administration.









Upcoming Recount for Bongbong Marcos’ Protest

The priority recount is expected to be completed in December this year. The Liberal Party barely has two months to block Bongbong Marcos from the Vice Presidency. As this is happening it is obvious that the killings particularly involving minors are rising. Hatred towards the President can be felt as their surviving families blame him for the deaths regardless of who the culprits are. Such incidents are likely to sabotage the campaigns of the administration given the scenario.

CHR Dismisses EJKs but Human Rights Watch Condemns War on the Poor

CHR





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Extrajudicial killings in the President’s war on drugs are not state-sponsored. This is according to an official of the Commission on Human Rights or CHR. The Human Rights Watch should know that there’s no comparison in the present number of vigilante killings with martial law. The military rule stops the killings of this type but did not get away from collateral damages. In history, ancient Filipino warriors put the law into their hands. This still exists even to this date.






Youtube video by; Rappler
[VIDEO]: Peter Bouckaert of the Human Rights Watch says the war on drugs is actually a war on the poor, as its victims are those who turn to drugs as reprieved from the squalor of their daily lives. Watch the full interview:



EJKs not State-Sponsored

CHR Commissioner Gwen Pimentel-Gana said there was no official policy ordering the Philippine National Police to kill suspected drug pushers and users. This is why those reported extra-judicial killings cannot be state-sponsored as earlier speculated by many human rights groups especially the ones from overseas that did not know much about the country’s culture and history.



A Police Matter

The CHR has no such finding that can lead them to conclude that the government has a hand in those killings. They, however, can see that vigilante killings continue. As a police matter, the administration should attend to this right away. Since these kinds of crimes lessened during martial law, oftentimes, the president talks about implementing it to the opposition of the Liberal Party.



Aquino’s Appointees

All the current CHR officials are appointees of the previous President Benigno Aquino III. They are Chair Jose Luis Gascon and Commissioners Karen Gomez-Dumpit, Leah Tanodra-Armamento, Roberto Cadiz and Gana who is also the sister of Senator Koko Pimentel who is an ally of Du30.








What the Foreign Human Rights Watch should Know

It is unfair to compare the martial law deaths with the vigilante killings nowadays. Gana said that to conclude that the war on drug killings are state-sponsored is not lawful. The Human Rights Watch should stop insinuating that the administration has something to do with it. The president’s pronouncements to defend his war on drugs are not admissions that he ordered such killings. Peter Bouckaert is right that there’s war on the poor since poverty is massive in the country. It’s their lack of education and opportunities that made them the killing targets. The government can only do so much. The community must actively take part in solving this problem. Perhaps with the help of human rights groups?

Why CHR is noisy on Drug War Killings and not on other Crimes?

chr





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Many people are confused why CHR or the Committee on Human Rights always make noises when it comes to Duterte’s inciting drug war killings. Whereas in petty crimes, they are quiet.




[VIDEO]: Run through of the difference between crimes committed by individuals – and the government’s influence to the rising drug war deaths.


Jurisdiction of CHR

The Human Rights Committee is the body of independent experts that monitors implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. This is the reason why the CHR is more likely in line with the United Nations. They are making sure that government abuses are stopped before it can damage the country and its citizens further.


Criminal Cases belongs to the Justice System

The criminal justice system consists of four pillars namely; law enforcement, prosecution, courts, and corrections. It is the machinery that the Philippine society uses for its control and prevention. So, law enforcers are the ones responsible for them and not CHR.


Some Politicians Mislead the Public

In their quest to protect their political affiliation, some senators despite knowing the law make comments that mislead the public. Like why CHR does not say something about that girl who was raped and killed by a drug addict? Now, you know the answer.


Human Rights Watch

“The detailed testimony from a ‘death squad’ member that then-Mayor Duterte was personally involved in killings and ordered others are very serious allegations that require an independent investigation,” Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch said.


Possible DDS Copycat

Nobody can deny that vigilante killings are on the rise since the drug war started. Others noted that it might be a DDS copycat or the drug criminals killing informers that can implicate them. Either way, the government has a responsibility to protect all citizens, criminals or not. Thus, explaining CHR’s moves.


CHR is Independent and not Controlled by Government

Despite getting a budget from the government, CHR is an independent body installed to protect the people. They are the protector of the majority and not conniving with any political faction.
