TFDP Executive Director

The defense and promotion of human rights is essential for building up of a peaceful society. (Compendium of the Social Doctrines of the Church # 494)

This government is under siege by its own moral bankruptcy. From its questionable mandate to the latest bribery scandals, to its continuing human rights violations and now the Manila Pen siege, this government continues to unravel.

In Behalf of Civil Society on the Commemoration of the 59th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration
Volume 21 Number 4

speech delivered by Carlo V. Cleofe

December 10, 2007
Palais de Nation
Geneva


Fifty-nine (59) years ago, world leaders drawing from the historical sources of peoples – their faiths, beliefs and cultures as well as their struggles – gathered together to forge and ratify the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

As a declaration, the historical significance of the UDHR can be seen in the fact that the principles contained in its provisions totally reflect the aspirations of peoples for freedom, justice, equality and peace. The UDHR sets a common standard by which the obligation of the state to respect, protect, and fulfill the inherent dignity of human beings is measured.

Flag Primer on the Writ of Amparo
Volume 21 Number 4
Friday, 15 January 2010 10:31
by Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG)

1. Origin of the remedy:

The writ of amparo (which means “protection”) is of Mexican origin. Its present form is found in Articles 103 and 107 of the Mexican Constitution.

Recurso de Amparo is a remedy against acts that violate any of the individual guarantees recognized in the Mexican constitution. It is available in most legal controversies and may be invoked in criminal, civil and administrative trials.

In its country of origin, the recurso de amparo, is of much broader application than what the Philippine Supreme Court has decided to adopt under the present Rule. It is also much broader in scope and application than the writ of habeas corpus, because the  latter is limited to cases of illegal confinement or detention.

Notes on the Universal Periodic Review Mechanism
Volume 21 Number 4
Friday, 15 January 2010 10:31
by Carlo V. Cleofe

The human rights community and civil society groups in the Philippines have a long history of engaging the United Nations (UN) system and developing international advocacy work in order to highlight cases of human rights violations in the country.

During the Marcos regime, human rights groups, particularly the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) was instrumental in gathering the support of the international community in the struggle against the dictatorship. TFDP, on several occasions, presented evidences at the UN to get the Philippines into the 1503 procedure and testimonies at the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal in Antwerp, Belgium in 1980. TFDP also made links and then had cooperative efforts with Amnesty International (AI) and the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
