Human rights activist unmask Chito Gascon's hypocrisy



A Facebook post of a human rights activist that was shared by veteran journalist Ira Panganiban against CHR Chairperson Chito Gascon was making rounds on social media.

Human rights activist Lourdes De Las Cagigas took her Facebook account and unmasked Gascon.

Read the full post below from De Las Cagigas:

"Ako ang harapin ni Gascon. I filed several complaints of illegal detention, warrantless arrests, no due process of detainees in BID Camp Bagong Diwa, detained only on the strength of an order and the signature of Delima. ( the BID and DOJ acted as judge, jury and executioner) Never was investigated! ( innocents are still detained) I filed several complaints rights of women and children violated , for months I followed it up with Atty. TWYLA RUBIN of CHR, nothing happened!




So they do deserve the 1k budget . If Senator Lacson tries to overturn it, let me remind him that a wife of a detainee, illegally detained , whose rights and that of her children are continually violated when they have to undergo a STRIP SEARCH , mind you a strip search not a body search every time they visit their loved one went personally to appeal to him in his office, he did nothing, never even investigated.... ngayon sya pa ang magdedefend sa CHR... taengna nya! When the same woman's minor child contracted meningitis and incurred a 3.2 m peso hospital bill and couldn't pay because her husband is illegally detained again she appealed to the office of Sen. Lacson because the hospital was keeping him hostage and refused to release him without payment.... AGAIN HE DID NOTHING, CHR DID NOTHING.

I brought the case to PAO and within a week the child was released.....when the PNP raided the detention facility last 2016, (did their christmas shopping) confiscated cash , cell phones, computers and other personal belongings of detainees (no contraband was found) again i filed a complain to the CHR, nothing, we appealed to media, nothing.



Only the warden at that time moved to secure the "confiscated" items back from the raiding team , he succeeded in getting back some of the items but not all and definitely no cash... and what did he get for being upright? The gratitude of the detainees and he was removed from his position as warden by Commissioner Morente!

Btw for the info of everyone, most , not all but a huge percentage of detainees of camp bagong diwa are crimeless, they are being detained for mere overstaying! We rave and rage as a nation when our ofws are detained or maltreated, or filipino tnt's are being deported yet we allow our govt to detain, imprison for years innocents....

WHERE WAS/IS THE CHR? WHERE IS THE MEDIA? WHERE IS THE DIPLOMATIC COMMUNITY? WHERE IS AGNES CALLAMARD, ÀI, UN and OTHER INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS GROUPS? Taengna nyong lahat."
