Duterte admin should ‘seriously heed’ EU’s recommendation - BAYAN MUNA


Bayan Muna strikes again and calls out the Duterte administration to “seriously heed” the call of the European Parliament.

House Deputy Minority Leader and Bayan Muna Representative Carlos Zarate in a statement said that the Duterte admin should initiate and implement an independent investigation on the human rights situation in the country.

Zarate even said the resolution which questions the human rights record of the country is a “very positive and welcome move” from the EU.

“This is a very positive and welcome move coming as it is from one of the world’s major and influential parliaments. The Duterte administration should seriously heed the recommendation of the  EU parliament, otherwise, it will only further its isolation internationally,” Zarate said

The EU parliament passed a resolution with a voting 626 to 7, with 52 abstentions, adopted a resolution expressing its “deepest concern at the rapidly deteriorating human rights situation” in the Philippines under President Duterte.

The same resolution also asked the Philippine government to give the Lopez-controlled ABS-CBN a license to broadcast, to drop the “politically motivated” charges against Rapper CEO Maria Ressa and free the detained senator Leila De Lima from Camp Crame Detention Center.

“As it is now, the Duterte administration is already known widely as a violator of human rights and as an opponent of press freedom and freedom of expression,” Zarate said.


“We have long been calling for an independent international probe on the spate of killings in the country like that of Bayan Muna coordinator Jory Porquia, Randall Echanis and Zara Alvarez,  as well as other human rights violations. This is a push in the right direction,” he added of the resolution.
