Rights group challenges P-Noy to run after torturers

June 25, 2010. Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) and relatives of political prisoners/detainees join the other members of UATC or the United Against Torture Coalition Philippines and the freedom from torture advocates worldwide in commemorating the International Day in Support of Torture Victims by challenging P-Noy to release all political prisoners/detainees who are most often also victims of torture and to prosecute their torturers.    

“We celebrate the criminalization of a gross human rights violation such as torture through the Republic Act 9745 or the “Anti-Torture Act” after decades of lobby and campaigns, but we also grieve that despite its passage torture still remains a practice among the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police,” Emmanuel Amistad, Executive Director of Task Force Detainees of the Philippines stated.

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP), as a human rights organization joins fellow advocates and relatives of victims of torture in the worldwide commemoration of the International Day in Support of Torture Victims by calling for the immediate implementation of RA 9745 (Anti-Torture Law) and for P-Noy to release all political prisoners and political detainees who are mostly victims of torture.

TFDP celebrates the enactment of RA 9745, a product of decades of arduous lobby and campaign by all who wish to banish torture from our midst. The war against torture has not been won by the enactment of an anti-torture law, there is still a need to be vigilant and determined in pursuing cases against torturers and other perpetrators of human rights violations. Only when we have sent a crystal clear message to violators that they face retribution through our justice system can we begin to celebrate. Today, torture remains a bloodstain that can not be washed away until impunity is dead and buried.

Drafting of the Implementing Rules and Regulations for the Anti-Torture Law Begins

After the passage of Republic Act 9745, the law penalizing acts of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, last November of 2009, the next step for the Philippine government is to draft the law’s Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR).  The IRR will serve as the guidelines for the effective implementation of the law.
