[PODCAST] KRIMINAL: What does the CHR do?
The Commission on Human Rights has its case files full under President Rodrigo Duterte. How does it work? Listen to KRIMINAL, Rappler's crime podcast.

President Rodrigo Duterte’s term has been marked by numerous allegations of human rights violations.

The moment he assumed office, killings erupted in Metro Manila, right in step with his declared “war against drugs.”

Duterte has since then used police as a favored weapon to enforce policies, including the response to the pandemic.

Again, allegations of human rights violations have risen.

Amid the accusations of abuse is the institution tasked to monitor and work to prevent all of them from happening again: the Commission on Human Rights (CHR).

In this episode of KRIMINAL, Rappler’s Rambo Talabong sits down with CHR Commissioner Karen Gomez-Dumpit to discuss how the CHR works.
