President Rodrigo Duterte considers the Commission on Human Rights an enormous thorn on his conflict towards medicine and terrorism and he feels that the nation was higher off with out its meddling.
“When the time comes, ‘yung CHR, ‘yung opisina dito, you are better abolished,” mentioned Duterte in a press convention after the State of the Nation Address.
But even earlier than the watchdog towards abuses by troopers and the police is scrapped, Duterte is already making the CHR powerless.
Duterte mentioned that he wouldn’t permit the CHR to research any police or soldier with out first getting his clearance.
“I will not allow my men to go there to be investigated. Human Rights Commission, you address your request through me because the Armed Forces is under me and the police is under me. Kaya pag kinwestyon (question) ninyo sila for investigation, dadaan muna sa akin,” mentioned Duterte.
CHR boss Chito Gascon and his workers have nettled Duterte for investigating the extrajudicial killings allegedly dedicated by the police within the anti-drug conflict and alleged abuses by troopers of their floor operations.
Duterte mentioned it was unfair for the CHR to research solely alleged atrocities dedicated by troopers and police whereas turning a blind eye on the abuses dedicated by the New People’s Army, comparable to its ambush of a convoy of the Presidential Security Group.
“Imbestigahin na muna ng Human Rights ‘yung ambush nung sa Presidential Security Group pati ‘yung pulis. ‘Pag wala kayong report niyan, huwag mo kaming guluhin diyan… tapon ko uli ‘yan sa mukha ninyo. Better do an equal job here,” Duterte mentioned.
“It does not say that your investigations will be solely focused on government men,” he added.
