THE Commission on Human Rights (CHR) will organize a community- based dialogue on the restoration of death penalty on February 20 at Nature’s Resort and Hotel in Talisay City.
CHR-Western Visayas Region David Bermudo said the discussion of the death penalty has taken center stage with the pronouncements made and actions taken by top administration officials especially those in the legislative branch of government.
“Our representatives ought to be the voices of the people in the hallowed hall of Congress where important discussions are to be made that will greatly affect the lives of our people and the destiny of our nation,” Bermudo added.
CHR-Negros Occidental head Romeo Baldevarona said various sector representatives, including the media, are invited to the dialogue.
The inputs will serve as the guide of our representatives in making their decisions, he added.
