House gives CHR a P1,000 budget

The House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to give the Commission on Human Rights a budget of only P1,000. File

MANILA, Philippines — The House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to give the Commission on Human Rights a budget of only P1,000 following its stringent criticisms of President Rodrigo Duterte's brutal campaign against illegal drugs.


The decision came after 119 representatives voted in favor of the move to slash the budget of the CHR while 32 went against the motion.


Before the vote, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, a staunch ally of Duterte, defended the decision, saying that such amount was appropriate considering that the CHR had been remiss in its duty to protect the human rights of all Filipinos.


He said that the CHR had been useless and interested only in protecting the rights of criminals. The speaker even suggested that the body seek budget from criminals and not the government.


The CHR, as a constitutional body, enjoys fiscal autonomy and cannot be defunded or be given a budget of only a peso, a way for some lawmakers to punish some government agencies.


This move by the House seems a way for it to skirt this prohibition.

This is a developing story.
