"We would like to reiterate that all victims of martial law have to apply in person, including those conclusively presumed as human rights violations victims so that the Claims Board will be able to determine the kind of human rights violations and determine appropriate awards, as provided by RA 10368," Board Chairperson Lina C. Sarmiento said in a statement posted on the board's website.
Neri Colmenares, earlier filed a petition for certiorari with the Supreme Court to annul the appointment of Sarmiento as chair of the BS Aquino Claims Board for supposedly failing to meet the criteria set by the law.
Sarmiento is a retired police officer who began her career with the defunct Philippine Constabulary, which committed the most number of human rights violations during Martial Law based on the records of human rights groups.

Lina Sarmiento of the Philippine National Police as chair of the Human Rights Victims Claims Board that shall process the recognition and reparation of Martial Law victims.
During the Arroyo administration, when Sarmiento was part of the PNP Human Rights Office, 152 women were victims of extrajudicial killing, 31 women were disappeared, while 290 women were illegally arrested and detained," said Cristina Palabay, Tanggol Bayi co-convenor.
While it is important to promote the substantive and democratic participation of women in all political processes, the appointment of Sarmiento does not, at all accounts, indicate that the poor, marginalized and disadvantaged Filipino women who suffered and struggled during the Martial Law period will attain justice, with a representative of their oppressors at the helm of the claims body," Palabay said.

According to PNP Director for Police-Community Relations, Director Lina C. Sarmiento, the PNP chief is seeing to it that policemen involved in the SAR operations will be given the proper medical attention noting the dozens of police personnel who have become sick or were injured in the SAR operations.
After wading thru knee-deep floodwaters in Catmon, Malabon the other day, Sarmiento, the PNP's first 2-star female general, said she noticed the presence of some policemen who have been wounded trying to rescue residents who are in grave danger of drowning in the city.
"I saw one police captain whose sole was punctured by a nail. There were many too who suffered from deep lacerations in their feet and legs while rescuing residents," she said.
Sarmiento said the police rescuers prefer to wear their blue shirts and shorts to make it much easier for them to move thru the floodwaters.
"But unknown to many, everybody faces grave danger when moving thru deep floodwaters. There is always the possibility that you may fall into an open manhole, hit a sharp stick, a nail or a scrap metal or any unseen object, or worst, even bitten by a snake," Sarmiento said.
