Article 5 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights prohibits torture: “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”  This applies to prisoners of war, captured violent extremists or those arrested or detained for any crime (such as drug addicts).  Torture is one of the worst abuses a State can commit against its citizens, causing not just immediate pain and loss but long-term impact on the victim and society as well.  A society that tolerates torture is one where gross inequities exist, where a privileged class can accept inhuman treatment of those who are “less.”

Robredo reveals Palace aspirant she would vote for other than herself, and moreVice President Leni Robredo bared some interesting tidbits about herself as she took on the fast talk challenge during “The Jessica Soho Presidential Interviews” on Saturday, Jan. 22. Galing galing ni Nanay😆😆😆😆😆 And one of these 'interesting tidbits' is that she's voting for Manny if she herself isn't running. Does this mean that in reality, she approves of Pacquiao's stance against LGBTQIA+ people ('mas masahol pa sa hayop') and her so-called 'support' for LGBTQIA+ is pure lip service? Leni’s a traditional politician. She blurted Manny Pacquiao’s name because he’s a non-contender to her unlike the the other 2. 🤫

(The Jessica Soho Presidential Interviews) Under the challenge, a series of questions is hurled at the presidential aspirant, which he or she must answer quickly.  Torture is one of the worst abuses a State can commit against its citizens, causing not just immediate pain and loss but long-term impact on the victim and society as well. According to Robredo, Senator Manny Pacquiao would be her top choice among the presidential aspirants if she was not vying for the presidency herself in the coming May 9 polls.  A society that tolerates torture is one where gross inequities exist, where a privileged class can accept inhuman treatment of those who are “less. “Kilala ko siya.”   Carol Gomez has been involved in violence against women, immigrant rights and social justice community organizing work for over two decades in the US and in Malaysia. The song is performed by cast members Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, and Stephanie Beatriz, who play Pepa, Felix, Dolores, Camilo, Isabela, and Mirabel in the film.

From 2002-2012, she founded and directed the Trafficking Victims Outreach and Services (TVOS) Network, which was subsequently renamed “Matahari: Eye of the Day. I know he is a very sincere person),” she said of Pacquiao when asked who would she vote for aside from herself. I know he is a very sincere person),” she said of Pacquiao when asked who would she vote for aside from herself.”  Shazeera Zawawi is the Senior Adviser for  Research and Innovation at the Association for the Prevention of Torture (APT).  I am also amazed to find out that she is an artist, who creates cartoons on the prevention of torture! Those of us who were old enough to remember the pains inflicted on the Bangsamoro during the Martial Law years cannot ever forget – should never forget – the disappearances, murders and massacres, the tortures inflicted on suspects detained on mere suspicions of criminality or crimes of rebellion. Dahil iyong pinagdaanan niyang panahon napakahirap (Because he went through a very difficult time).  Fortunately for us, the return of democracy with the administrations of the late President Corazon C.” The Vice President also shared that she always carries a cross with her. Aquino and Fidel V. Asked about her guiding principle in life, Robredo said, “Laging gumawa ng tama at i-treat iyong ibang tao kung papaano natin i-treat ang sarili natin (Always do what is right and treat other people the way we would want to treat ourselves).

Ramos also ushered in support for the strengthening of human rights protection.  Civil society has flourished in the Philippines, creating a network that checks and balances whatever excessive zeal our government’s security sector may exhibit in protecting the state. On the average, anim na oras ang tulog ko (I sleep six hours a day). On the average, anim na oras ang tulog ko (I sleep six hours a day).  Supporting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Philippines is also a signatory to  the United Nations Convention against Torture (UNCAT). A concrete reminder that our own government did use torture against its citizens is Republic Act 10368, the “Human Rights Reparation and Recognition Act of 2013. Robredo, however, has reservations on a number of things, such as same-sex marriage.’   Government has acknowledged its “legal and moral obligation for the gross human rights violations committed by the regime of former President Ferdinand E. She said she only agrees with civil unions of same-sex couples.

Marcos during martial law from 21 September 1972 to 25 February 1986 and one month before and after the period,” according to the Philippine Commission on Human Rights. She also said she’s “open to discussing” the 100 percent foreign ownership issue.  RA 10368 has recognized the suffering of those murdered or tortured or suffered loss – whether civil, political or economic – by providing reparation to the victims or their families whose human rights were violated.  Ten billion pesos, which came from the recovered Marcos Swiss deposits, were provided for the reparations and for the establishment of a memorial museum. Robredo said she is against allowing candidates to run for an elective post if there’s a pending case filed against them. Robredo said she is against allowing candidates to run for an elective post if there’s a pending case filed against them.   In thus protecting our human rights and criminalizing torture,  the Philippines is rather unique in South East Asia.  Carol and Shazeera note that Malaysia has yet to ban torture. Surprisingly, even as she is known to be a vocal critic of the President Duterte’s bloody anti-illegal drugs campaign, Robredo refused to give a straight answer to the question of whether or not Duterte should be prosecuted by the International Criminal Court (ICC).

  For instance,  caning is still used as a legal punishment for criminal offences. “Wala ako sa capacity para magsabi na kailangan siya i-prosecute o hindi kasi nasa preliminary investigation stage pa lang siya (I am not in the capacity to say that he needs to be prosecuted or not because it’s just in the preliminary investigation stage),” she explained. Amnesty International (AI) estimates that as many as 10,000 people each year are caned in Malaysia. Lastly, Robredo said she opposes the following: divorce, death penalty, abolition of the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG), legalization of “jueteng”, lowering the minimum age of criminal liability, and Philippine offshore gaming operators (POGOs).  According to AI, there is training for officers on how to conduct caning.  Unfortunately, most Filipinos do not have memories of the Martial Law days.  Most cannot imagine torture as an instrument of the government against criminality, rebellion or violent extremism.

  Carol and Shazeera remind us that torture exists, even in rich Malaysia.  And let me remind all of us that torture can, in the dark of political night, once again become a measure to contain us.  As BARMM celebrates its 3 rd  anniversary, I hope and pray that the protection of our human rights is at the core of our foundation for genuine autonomy and a just peace.   (MindaViews is the opinion section of MindaNews.
