The regional director of the Commission on Human Rights in Central Visayas (CHR-7)is hoping to hear a message that adheres to human rights in the State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday (July 22).

Arvin Odron, CHR-7 director, said their office hopes for Duterte to emphasize on the state policies that protect a person’s constitutional rights.

“CHR is hoping for the President to reiterate with clear conviction the policies of his administration particularly on the observance of due process and respect for human rights consistent with the declared policy of the State to serve and protect the people without discrimination,” Odron told Cebu Daily News.

“I hope he will likewise mention how his administration will execute the commitment of the Philippine State, to the international community and to the Filipino people, to value the inherent dignity of all human persons and its commitment to guarantee full respect for human rights,” he added.
