[SPOTLIGHT] (HRVCB) Did I forget something? RECAP

It’s a good Sunday.

Anyway, to all fathers out there… HAPPY FATHERS DAY!

father-and-son_fist-bump

Today is the last day for me to post about FAQs or Frequently asked Questions. Actually, it ended yesterday but today, I’ll give you a recap.

So, to summarize, you can go file in or submit in your application at UP ISSI E. Virata Hall E. Jacinto St. UP Diliman, Quezon City from Monday to Friday at 8am-5pm from May 12, 2014 until November 10, 2014.

And for reminders, the BLOG LIST for their CARAVAN is UPDATED. You can check out where they will go HERE.

And call for the one’s whose area is close to LUCENA. HRVCB or the HUMAN RIGHTS VICTIMS CLAIMS BOARD will be there TOMORROW, June 16 and 17 at Bulwagang Kalilayan Provincial Capitol Compound Quezon Ave., Lucena City.

Don’t forget to bring in your ORIGINAL documents along with a PHOTOCOPY of your documents. Your affidavits should be NOTARIZED already for FASTER processing. And note that the board will only need ONE COPY of your AFFIDAVIT so if you are planning to have it notarized, only prepare one copy for them.

If you are the victim, you only need an application form, a duly notarized sworn statement and 2 government issued IDs. It would be up to you if you would like to submit in your supporting documents but it is HIGHLY encouraged for you to do so to give weight to your case. Okay?

Your supporting documents could also be sworn statements of 2 of your co detainees or 2 people who have knowledge of what happened to you (duly notarized, of course) if you don’t have clippings, photos, release papers, ASSO or other documents to present.

If you are the representative, aside from the aforementioned, you also need to prove your FILIATION to the victim. It’s either you provide a birth certificate of you or the victim or marriage certificate (if claiming for your husband/wife) if you can’t provide such documents, duly notarized sworn statement of 2 disinterested person who personally knew your filiation with the victim is needed.

They’ve had reports of a FIXER that gives out copies of TORTURE CLAIM from HAWAII for a promise of 10% of how much they’ll get from the board once they’ve claimed. I’m telling you now, DON’T BELIEVE FIXERS! IF THEY’RE NOT FROM HRVCB, THEY CANNOT HELP YOU!

Once more, their APPLICATION FORM is free and if the info I got is correct, they have the forms translated to Filipino and Visayan too and is free to download from their website.

[SPOTLIGHT] (HRVCB) Money Talks?

Happy Lunch time everyone!

First of all, I’d like to greet every Filipinos in the world, “HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY” to you!

Whether it’s from a bad relationship, a bad work place, a ‘nothing’ life or something more historical… happy independence day! According to our books, today is the day that Emilio Aguinaldo, our first President, declared the Philippines free from our land’s conquerors.

Whether it’s true or not… will we ever know?

Anyway, that aside, let’s talk about my blog for today. Yes, it’s still about the Human Rights Victims Claims Board. Today, it’s about the monetary reparation.

After the money award for all claims has been finally determined, distribution shall be scheduled by the Board and each claimant shall be duly notified of the details for delivery of monetary reparations due him/her.

As I’ve said in my previous blog posts, from May 12, 2014 to November 10, 2014, HRVCB will be taking in applications. After that, they will sift through the files they have and seek who should get the reparation and who doesn’t then post an initial list which is contestable by anyone and then a final list.

By the way, the BLOG LIST for their CARAVAN is UPDATED. You can check out where they will go HERE.

[SPOTLIGHT] (HRVCB) Now… what?

Awesome Wednesday everyone!

Here we are with another blog post for the Human Rights Victims Claims Board. Today, I’ll discuss about what will happen after you file your application.

a) The Board will evaluate each individual claim and decide on eligibility to receive monetary reparations.

b) The preliminary list of eligible claimants will be published to give opportunity for the filing of opposition and/or appeal.

c) The final list of eligible claimants will be published after all oppositions and/or appeal have been resolved.

d) The monetary award per claim will be determined within thirty (30) days from the final list of HRVV’s has been posted

There you go, that’s basically what is going to happen once you’ve filed your application. They will post a FIRST list which could be opposed or appeal to and the FINAL list after.

Their ANGELES, PAMPANGA Caravan ended as a success last night. Although, according to them, they had difficulties controlling the amount of applicants and FIXERS that is asking forP300.00 as payment for the APPLICATION FORM. Once more people, THE FORMS ARE FREE! FREE! FREE! NO CHARGE! GET IT?

Sorry, it just saddens me that people keeps taking advantage of the already disadvantaged. It’s nonsensical and it’s… it’s… not a good example. Is this how you want us to live? Is this the place you want us to grow up to? The environment you want us to see? Corruption at it’s finest?

The chairman of the Board, along with 2 other board members went there to help control the people and they weren’t able to leave until late at night. An emergency help team were dispatched earlier yesterday to help the intake process.

[SPOTLIGHT] (HRVCB) What are the… steps?

It’s a Good Tuesday don’t you think? Getting closer and closer and closer to holiday. Ugh. If only that would come sooner!

Anyway, for today, since I’ve already told you what you should bring when you file in a claim, I’ll tell you now what happens when you get there

Basically, when you get there, you will be going through 3 steps.

First, you’ll present your documents with the staff at the information desk.

Second, if you’ve passed (which basically means you have the basic documents which are the duly filled application form, a notarized affidavit and government issued IDs/ NSO or Local Registry of birth or death certificate of the HRV or claimant) they will endorse you to their paralegals who will check your documents once more to verify the authenticity and to check if there are missing papers;

And finally, if you’ve passed them, you will be directed to the encoders who will scan your documents and secure the hard copies on file, take your picture, signature and biometrics so they can provide you an acknowledgment receipt which will prove that you have submitted in your application.

On the website of the Human Rights Victims Claims Board, you can track your claims. You can file in an application for one or more human rights violation victims as long as you can prove your filiation and that you are the legal heir.

[SPOTLIGHT] (HRVCB) Prove it?

Woah! It’s Hey Monday again~

I don’t know whether to feel happy or sad anymore though. More on the tired but happy side, I guess.

It’s been a week since I started my blog and it seems my passion hasn’t died down yet so I’m here again to tell you on HOW TO PROVE that you or the one you’re claiming for is an HRVCB claimant alright?

As I have said on my previous blog post, you need the following:

To prove the HRV, the applicant shall submit one or more of the following:

a) NSO-issued or local death certificate (If the HRV is deceased);

b) Warrant of arrest, seizure orders (PDA, PCO, ASSO), mission order and other similar documents (If the person has been detained: There is a MOA that has been signed by officials to provide a copy of these documents should they be available);

c) Certification by custodial government agencies on the fact of detention, carpeta, police blotter, NBI files, release papers and other similar documents;

d) Doctor’s affidavit, medico-legal, autopsy or pathology certificate or report, and other similar documents (These also includes Medical Documents whether you underwent psychological therapy);

e) Declassified documents from the Department of National Defense and other government agencies;

f) Court records;

g) Original or duly certified lawyer’s records;

h) Photographs with affidavit of proper authentication;

i) Sworn statement of two (2) co-detainees or two (2) persons who have personal knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the HRV;

j) Secondary sources of information from reliable sources may be presented such as church/non-government organization report, books documenting HRVs, news clippings or other similar documents;

k) Other documents and evidence attesting the occurrence of the incident and violations or that may be required for the award of any reparation.

As it says, ONE or more of the following. This is your supporting documents so that the application could be verified. As long as the violation has happened during the time of Martial Law or even before that (there are cases submitted that an illegal detention was considered okay for application even if it happened before Martial Law was declared as long as they can prove that it is for the PREPARATION for it and it is a continuing offense/detention up during Martial Law)

My advise is to bring ALL of your DOCUMENTS with regards to Martial Law, just to be on the safe side. Don’t you think it would be easier to decide if the facts are staring at their faces? Anyway, you don’t have to worry if you don’t have these documents or if you’ve lost it. We can’t help moving or getting flooded, getting nabbed or worse houses burnt to the ground along with our files so in that regards, as long as you can find 2 disinterested persons who knew about what happened and the violations or co-detainees that can make an affidavit in support to your claim, that’s good enough.

By the way, the BLOG LIST for their CARAVAN is UPDATED. You can check out where they will go HERE.

And call for the one’s whose area is close to PAMPANGA. HRVCB or the HUMAN RIGHTS VICTIMS CLAIMS BOARD will be there TODAY , June 9 and 10 at Angeles City Session Hall from 8am to 5pm.
