Pagpapatuloy ng joint rights program ng PH, UN suportado ng CHR

MANILA, Philippines – Nanawagan ang Commission on Human Rights (CHR) nitong Lunes, Abril 8 sa pagpapatuloy ng
UN Joint Programme in the Philippines (UNJP), sa pagsasabing malaki ang ambag nito sa pagprotekta sa human rights, maging ang pagtugon sa drug war killings sa panahong ng administrasyong Duterte.

Ang tinutukoy ng CHR ay ang three-year collaboration sa pagitan ng UN at ng pamahalaan, kasama ang CHR at iba pang civil society organizations na nagpapalakas sa mga institusyon sa bansa upang masigurong magagarantiyahan ang mga Filipino sa kanilang karapatan sa pamamagitan ng epektibong technical assistance at capacity-building measures.

”While the UNJP has provided much to improve the human rights situation in the country, the Commission believes that more has to be achieved to make sure that the intended purpose of this partnership remains faithful to initial goals,” saad sa pahayag ng CHR.

“In particular, we are hopeful that the technical capacity-building efforts will be utilized immediately to address the very matters which prompted the establishment of UNJP in the Philippines, such as the alleged war on drugs which resulted in extrajudicial killings,” dagdag pa niya.

Sinabi ng CHR na binigyang-daan ng inisyatibo ng UN ang pamahalaan na magpatupad ng mas nakatutok na pamamaraan sa pagpapaunlad ng proteksyon ng human rights, at nagpalawak sa human rights-based approaches ang strategic framework ng UNJP.

“As the end of the program nears in July 2024, we recommend the prospect of continuing this partnership as a foundational pillar, ensuring that the country stays clear-sighted towards its goal to comply with its international human rights obligations and to implement domestic policies which respond to the needs of the vulnerable and marginalized,” pahayag ng CHR.

“In fact, this stands congruent with the state commitment to prioritize “measures that protect and enhance the right of all the people to human dignity” in the 1987 Constitution and is also strengthened through the Partnership Framework for Sustainable Development 2019-2023,” dagdag pa nito.

Anang CHR, ang pagkakaroon ng UNJP ay epektibong pamamaraan upang mapanatili ang human rights conversation ay nananatili sa governance framework ng bansa.

“Just as it is crucial to keep the dialogue ongoing, the very institutions which pave the way to ensure that human rights remain to be a State priority and obligation should be empowered as a sign of this commitment. The human rights framework in the Philippines will be further established if both local and global mechanisms are strengthened and treated as co-existing channels which envision to continuously improve the situation of the country,” anang komisyon.

“We look forward to more productive engagements between the Philippine government and the international community which will strengthen domestic policies that promote truth, justice, and accountability. As the human rights watchdog, monitor, educator, and adviser, the CHR is more than ready to extend its proactive participation to all relevant government actors and allow for a more holistic undertaking of the State obligation to promote and protect the fundamental rights of all Filipinos, dagdag pa.
