R. Tiglao Expose: "No Court or CHR Case Files re human Rights Violations vs. Marcoses in PH"


Veteran journalist and former diplomat during the Arroyo Administration, Rigoberto Tiglao made another explosive expose about the facts that until now there is no court or CHR case filed about the alleged Human Rights Violations vs. the Marcoses in the Philippines.



According to Rigoberto "Bobi" Tiglao while the Yellows (Liberal Party) continued its allegations against the Marcos Family for widespread human rights violations (HRVs) during Martial Law, they have never filed a single case for such crimes at the Commission on Human Rights the Yellows set up in 1987 nor in any Philippine Court.



The non-filing of any human rights violations against the Marcos Family is indeed intriguing despite the fact that the Yellow Regime held uninterrupted power for 12 years (Cory and then her anointed Fidel Ramos), it never got around to filing a single case against, much less convict, a Marcos, a police or military, soldier or policeman for HRVs, the biggest "sin" the Martial Law Regime has been accused of.

In order to proved Tiglao's claimed about his expose that there is no single HRV case filed against the Marcos family, CHR Chairman Aurora Navarrete-Recina in March 1997, upon the request of Rep. Imelda Marcos, issued a ceritification that there were no formal complaints with the CHR against the former President and members of his family.

Bobi Tiglao also revealed the possible reasons why there were no such cases filed. The possible reasons are listed below:

The Corazon Aquino regime was so inept and lazy that it didn’t bother to file HRV cases against the Marcoses and its police and military officials. In contrast, the Aquino regime was intense in its attempts to prove that a host of corporations were owned by Marcos or his associates, and therefore must be confiscated.



The Yellow regime was so afraid that if the police and the military officials during martial law were prosecuted for HRVs, they would have joined the RAM-led coup attempts, or even undertake their own rebellion;

A prosecution of HR violations during martial law would have unarguably led to the prosecution of Fidel Ramos, the EDSA I hero and Cory’s General, since for the entire period of Martial Law, he was in control of the Philippine Constabulary that played the biggest role in alleged HRVs. Cory — and her American backers — of course would have none of that;

Such a project would have unearthed the truth that while there were incontrovertibly HR abuses, it wasn’t state policy of the Marcos regime. These were committed only by the rogue members of the military and the police, which emerge in any armed force in any country in all conflict situations.
