'No need' for SOGIE Equality Bill - PNP Chief Albayalde

The different personalities are now weighing on whether or not the sexual orientation and gender identity and expression (Sogie) bill should be enacted as a law.

The country’s top cop, Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief General Oscar Albayalde has his way,there is no need for the SOGIE equality bill to be a law to give protection to the members of the LGBT community from discrimination.

He says that the 1987 Constitution already “provides ample protection for everyone already."

"There’s no need actually kasi (because) we are already protected by the Constitution and by all laws of the land equally," he told reporters.

"Ang sa'kin lang pong take d'yan (My take is), we cannot make laws that are tailor-fit to a certain group lang (only). Let us not make laws just to satisfy a certain person, individual or group. Otherwise everybody will have their own laws."
Albayalde cited Sen. Nancy Binay proposal, who called for a more “universal” anti-discrimination bill.

"Sa ngayon (Right now), we (PNP) really cannot wisdom on crafting a law just for that purpose alone. I don’t think kailangan pa natin ang ganiyang batas (we need that law) just for that purpose alone and for those people alone," he said.
"Otherwise, pwede rin sana ako. Paano kung yung mga walang buhok dapat eh 'di ka dini-discriminate 'di ba? Eh 'di gagawa din sana ng batas ng ganun."the PNP Chief added.
