Below was the letter to the Editor of Mr. Max De Mesa of the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA), published last March 27, 2015 in the Philippine Daily Inquirer and the scanned copy of the Commission on Human Rights of the Philippines (CHRP) answer. Read on…
Calling all human rights stakeholders to come together to stop corruption and human rights violations in the Commission on Human Rights of the Philippines (CHRP).
Let’s start by participating in the process for the selection of the next batch of five members of the CHRP, by nominating qualified persons. All the present commissioners will end their terms of office come May 4, 2015. The nominations are meant to broaden the pool of nominees the president can choose from. In no way is it meant to diminish the president’s prerogative to choose the next commissioners of this constitutional body.
