Alvarez says all CHR commissioner must quit



After speaking up about Commission on Human Rights (CHR) Chairperson Chito Gascon, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez calls for all commissioners of the office to quit along with their chairperson.

"Kung mag-resign, dapat lahat sila magresign dahil mali nga 'yung kanilang ano eh, 'yung kanilang pananaw doon sa tungkulin nila," Alvarez said.

Alvarez issued these comments amid controversies around the CHR being unable to live up to their mandate to protect human rights in the Philippines.



"Maglagay tayo ng Commissioners na naiintindihan 'yung mandato nila. Kasi 'yung isip nila kaya sila nandiyan para bantayan 'yung human rights violations, 'yung mga nasa gobyerno aba eh mali 'yon. Hindi ka nagbabasa ng provision ng Constitution," Alvarez said.

"Kung di nila ginagawa trabaho nila, sobrang kapal naman ng mukha. Gusto pa magpasweldo di naman ginagawa trabaho," He added.

The Speaker justified the Php 1000 budget allocation for the CHR saying that the government would only issue their original budget allocation of Php 678 million if the office pursues programs for the benefit of the people.

"'Yung pagbabalik ng budget ng CHR ay madedepende 'yan doon sa ibibigay nila sa amin na programa. Ano ba ang programa niyo? Ngayon kung makita namin na maganda ang programa bakit hindi, may pa bicam naman. Kailangan ijustify nila ang paggagamitan ng pera," Alvarez said.

"Kailangan lang sa akin sige pakita mo san mo gagastahin 'yung pera. Tingnan muna namin 'yung programa, kailangan in the fulfillment of their mandate," he added.
