Martial Law victims in Bicol to file compensation suits

LEGAZPI CITY—Bicolano victims of human rights violations during Martial Law in Bicol may file their compensation suits from Monday to Wednesday next week at the Ibalong Centrum for Recreation here, the Philippine News Agency (PNA) reported.

Karapatan-Bicol spokesperson Vince Casilihan said some 3,000 victims from across the region are expected to file suits.

The compensation is in consonance with Republic Act No. 10386 or the Human Rights Victims Repatriation and Recognition Act, which was signed by President Benigno Aquino III last year.

A total of P10 billion from the alleged ill-gotten wealth of the Marcoses will be used to pay the victims.

Requirements

Victims, said the PNA, must personally file their claims. They also need to provide the following documents: a duly-accomplished application form; a detailed notarized statement about the violation; a government-issued ID; a National Statistics Office or locally-issued birth certificate or baptismal certificate; and supporting documents to prove the human rights violation.

In the case, however, that the victim of the violation was killed, or has died, his or her legal heir or an authorized representative can file the compensation. In such case, the following requirements must be presented: a birth certificate or marriage certificate; the death certificate of the victim; photo/s of the victim; and a Special Power of Attorney from other legal heirs authorizing the claimant to represent them.

For physically-incapacitated victims, claimants must bring a notarized authorization, proof of filiation, photo/s of the human rights victim, and a medical certificate of the victim.

For mentally or psychologically-disabled victims, proof of filiation and photo/s of the human rights victim, and a medical certificate of the victim must be presented.


The filing period started on May 12, and will be open until November 10. Failure to file within the period is deemed a waiver, the Philippine News Agency added.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM/With report from Connie B. Destura
