[Statement] On the order for barangays to submit list of unvaccinated residents | CHR spokesperson, Atty Jacqueline Ann de Guia
Statement of CHR spokesperson, Atty Jacqueline Ann de Guia, on the order for barangays to submit list of unvaccinated residents
The Commission on Human Rights continues to remind the government that upholding human rights remains to be an important consideration in crafting and implementing policies addressing the pandemic. With the recent directive of the Department of the Interior and Local Government for barangays to submit a list of unvaccinated individuals in their communities, we hope that this does not result in the breach of the right to privacy of individuals and, more importantly, not restrict the unvaccinated from accessing essential good and services. We cannot use the present pandemic as a justification to set aside pertinent laws and human rights standards meant to protect human rights and dignity in all situations and at all times.
