CHR forming human rights data banking system

Manila (7 October) -- Commission on Human Rights (CHR) is establishing a data banking system that'll help enhance its investigative and monitoring function.

"The Commission is fortifying its capability-building program," CHR Chairperson Leila de Lima said.

She noted CHR aims to include and standardize in this data banking system all records on jail visitation, education programs and investigation of human rights violations.

Through this, CHR expects to improve its monitoring of the Philippine human rights situation.

CHR also sees the upcoming data banking system as helping enhance its probe of human rights violations.

The agency believes establishing such system is timely, particularly as records since 2000 show it undertook various investigations and legal interventions covering people's economic, social and cultural rights.

To further boost capability of CHR, de Lima said this agency adapted the Focal Person System (FPS).

FPS aims to facilitate and maximize CHR's available financial and human resources by focusing efforts of the agency on sectors and human rights issues needing its early action.

Under FPS, specific CHR personnel are tasked with focusing on international human rights treaties the Philippines entered into, vulnerable groups and United Nations Special Procedures.
