Today, May 8, the first batch of human rights victims under the administration of former President Ferdinand Marcos, will receive compensation.
President Duterte gave the directive to the Human Rights Victims’ Claims Board (HRVCB), to speed up the process of evaluating and releasing the claims of martial law victims.
Reparation payments will be done through Land Bank cards and will come in monthly tranches.
The first batch will be from Metro Manila and the HRVCB will have a schedule for the provinces.
President Duterte supports the welfare of all, not the least of which are the victims of human rights violations during the martial law years.
