Though what interests me most in this 1k budget issue is that the CHR was supposedly created pala by an Aquino Mother EO [163] and is not a constitutional body and fiscally autonomous agencies [like the COA/CSC/Comelec]...

Though they say the legal basis for a CHR is Article XIII, Section 17 of the 1987 Cory Constitution and Executive Order No. 292 or the Administrative Code of 1987

Yep. It's not a constitutional body.

And if comes a time where the Government oversteps on my rights, I'll rather go to PAO and ask for help.

Ask also this if your civil liberties are violated by your own government, who do you turn to? Hindi ba CHR? If I may also add, Congress cannot simply abolish CHR since it is a constitutional commission. They will have to amend the constitution if they really wanted too. But I'm not gonna pretend that the CHR isn't leaning to a certain political party also. For me, just change the leadership of CHR.
basahin mo sir, hindi constitutional body yan.... kung na violate rights mo? Mag habla ka sa husgado, barangay, pulis, supreme court, court of appeals, municipal trial court, regional trial court.........

ayan ang primary civil liberties protection mo hindi CHR.....

kung walang CHR - hindi na ba operative ang BATAS???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I thought about that. PAO is actually doing a better job of protecting human rights of those who really need it. The lady boss Persida Acosta I believe is more of a human rights specialist than Gascon. And she's good.

I believe it is a technical issue from what I've heard. Congress forgot to enact the law/bill to create the CHR. Cory's EO is just an EO.

CHR is a redundant, non-constitutional entity. Even the 1.000 php budget is a waste of money. Just abolish it already. It's done no good or better than other government agencies taking similar responsibilities

yeah PAO deserves the budget more, they have actual output that helps the public.

and did CHR really payed for the expenses of Agnes "drugs does not cause brain damage or cause violence" Callamares when she went here? tax payers money being used to undermine a democratically elected admin?

and as usual the virtue signalers are being hysterical online, when CHR is into partisanship they should not expect a fair reply.

Man! Ted Failon is REALLY ripping CHR Pimentel-Gana on the shortcomings of the CHR. He earlier interviewed Speaker Alvarez. I hope there is a clip of this episode later because its very juicy stuff! He even pointed out Chairman Gascon's biases, etc, almost agreeing with Alvarez. And even the Constitution specifically makes no distinction of the CHR's mandate between human rights of criminals and victims, it should be human rights for ALL!!! So yeah...

CHR has been villified for years.

But today, more so than ever.

Kung hindi ba naman ewan tong si BPE, you appointed a senior member of your political party to be the head of the CHR. Director General of the LP. Led the 2010 NoyNoy Aquino Presidential Campaign.

Eh di anyare.

Remember one time we went to the PAO for a meeting, after the meeting, Acosta requested for us...so ayun courtesy call and photo-op ng di oras, casual attire pa suot namin.

Kung anu yung nakikita sa TV, ganun din sha in real life.

From what i read, it seems the National Transport Act (Traffic Crisis Bill) is already in second reading in both the Senate and the House. This bill was expedited for passage by the end of the year. Certified urgent by the President from the last LEDAC meeting. It will speed up procurement and ROW issues

Here are the clips from this morning's Failon Ngayon. Very interesting thing to watch.







Its too bad it did not include Ted's commentary after the third video, as well as the text messages...

Congress revised it. Just the other day, Poe defended it on the Senate floor, Gordon interpellated her, then Recto and Drilon. Some of them added amendments, etc. it's expected to be approved by third reading next month, or earlier.

I'd rather give my 5% tax payments to the AFP / PAO to protect my "human rights"

Bam Aquino pushes for bill letting taxpayers give 5% of taxes to CHR
Published September 14, 2017 2:24pm
By KATHRINA CHARMAINE ALVAREZ, GMA News

Quote:
Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV on Thursday pushed for the approval of his bill that would allow taxpayers to allocate five percent of their taxes to the Commission on Human Rights (CHR).

This, after the House of Representatives slashed the proposed P678-million 2018 budget for CHR to a measly P1,000.

Several netizens have expressed willingness to donate funds to the CHR.

Aquino said his Senate Bill No. 699 or the People’s Fund Bill gives taxpayers a chance to decide to which agency a portion of their taxes will go.

“Galing sa pinaghirapan ng taumbayan ang ginagamit na pondo ng pamahalaan kaya nararapat lang natin silang konsultahin kung paano ito gagamitin,” Aquino said.

The bill creates mechanisms for an individual taxpayer to allocate five percent of his or her income tax for any of the following: (1) an accredited charity or civil society organization; (2) a priority national or local government project; or (3) a legitimate political party.

Under this bill, the Bureau of Internal Revenue shall establish the mechanism that would enable individual taxpayers to select beneficiaries upon filing of their annual income tax returns.

Indeed! If anything, the PAO needs more funding since they do an even better job in protecting the poor and destitute than the CHR ever did.

Makabayan bloc bolts majority coalition, cuts ties with Duterte
Published September 14, 2017 2:59pm
By ERWIN COLCOL, GMA News

Quote:
The seven-member Makabayan bloc composed of leftist lawmakers on Thursday announced their decision to break their alliance with the House majority coalition and with President Rodrigo Duterte, whom they accused of reneging on his words.

"Nagdeklara kami ng pagkalas sa majority [bilang] pagtutol namin sa administrasyong Duterte na pasista, kontra-mamamayang rehimen," ACT Teachers party-list Representative Antonio Tinio said in a press conference in Quezon City.

"Mula ngayon wala na kami sa majority, kami ay magiging independent bloc."
