There you go! We are now on our fifth day and today, I’ll tell you WHERE TO GO.

Jacinto Street, Quezon City, or at on-site/satellite intake offices to be designated.

They are still yet to announce on WHERE exactly they would go on these days so this blog post is marked as INCOMPLETE and SUBJECT FOR CHANGE.
It’s actually not supposed to be in this blog post but I’ll put it here anyway is the WHERE do claimants go if they don’t have CLIPPINGS or SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS.
If you don’t have clippings, you can check in UP Diliman Main Library archives and/or try to remember if you have files with the NGO’s or non-govermental organizations. There is a possibility that you have documents with them or clippings in which you have your name included. As for release orders, you can check the jail where you were detained and ask for a copy of your release order if there is any because there is already an agreement with the Claims Board and Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippines National Police with regards to those types of documents that it should be provided to them.
HROnlinePH has released a press release yesterday from PAHRA or the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates about their initiative in helping the HRVCB in terms of looking and helping the claimants file for reparation and recognition. Linked in the article is TFDPs (Task Force Detainees of the Philippines) list of documented victims which can also be found here.
ADDITIONAL NOTES FROM HRVCB:
1. The documents that you would submit would temporarily stay at the care of HRVCB at the time of processing and would later be permanently transferred to a memorial, museum or library. If you want to keep your original documents, you can submit the certified copy of this. You can certify it on site with the Officer of the Day.
2. Direct or Indirect commission of fraud or any other colllusion, falsification, misrepresentations of facts, or any other kind of anomaly in the accomplishment of this form, or in obtaining any benefit under this application shall be subject to CRIMINAL ACTION punishable by 8-10 years imprisonment and other accesory penalties as provided for under Republic Act No. 10368, Sec. 25.
