Former Secretary of Interior and Local Government Rafael Alunan cannot hide his dismay over what the Commission on Human Rights intention to investigate the brave and noble men of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police.
Atty Gemma Parojinog of the CHR in a press conference said that they will investigate the members of the military as to how the death of ISIS leaders Isnilon Hapilon and Omar Maute, she finds that because of what can be seen from the pictures of the two slain terrorist leaders- the military might have not respected their rights by not following the rules of engagement.
“Para ma-ensure na yung karapatan nung mga nasa kabila ay meron ding respeto (This is to ensure that the rights of the other parties are also respected),” Parojinog said in an interview with UNTV. *

Alunan, gave a piece of his mind re the situation the CHR wants to pursue. In his Facebook account he asks the CHR “where did you find the temerity to even suggest that they (military) may have violated human rights?
Im quoting in full Rafael Alunan III’s shout out in his Facebook account:
“This is addressed to CHR representative Gemma Parojinog. The Rules of Engagement between law enforcement and confer differ!
Please reflect on this and internalize. Then scan the videos on Fb posted by Scout Ranger Books, or my wall, or YouTube about the combat in Marawi; what crimes against humanity the ISIS coalition of terrorists committed; and what the AFP-PNP had to endure and sacrifice to liberate Marawi at the cost of 163 DEAD and over 1,000 WOUNDED!
Not even the so-called :Moro Liberation Fronts” sacrificed their blood for their fellow-Maranaos to liberate Marawi the way AFP-PNP did, and with great care so as not to incur collateral damage. Where did you find the temerity to even suggest that they may have violated human rights? Search deep in your soul to know what’s right, and the context, instead of parroting nonsense. 10/19/2017”
This message is addressed to all those who’ve politically weaponized human rights to suit their twisted biases and selfish ends. *
“A terrorist who beheads has rights but a soldier who kills the terrorist in combat does not? What kuskusbalungus is that?
If I got them right I can behead them; it’s my human right.10/19/2017”
