MANILA - Human rights advocates slammed the appointment of retired police general Lina Sarmiento as head of the Human Rights Victims' Claims Board in a protest action in Mendiola on Feb. 24, a day before the country marks the 28th anniversary of the first EDSA uprising.
"It is not only her credentials as former PC (Philippine Constabulary) officer that is an anathema to the historic struggle against martial law, but her zero track record of any involvement in asserting human rights nor any understanding or knowledge of the plight and struggles of martial law victims during and after the dark days of Marcos Dictatorship," Selda or the Samahan ng mga Ex-Detainees Laban sa Detensyon at Aresto an organization of former political detainees, said in its statement. On February 13, the Aquino administration announced the formation of the Human Rights Victims Claims Board, a year after the enactment of Republic Act 10368 or the Human Rights Victims Reparation and Recognition Act of 2013. Aside from Sarmiento, other members of the board include: Jose Luis Martin Gascon, Byron Bocar, Aurora Parong, Galuasch Ballaho, Jacqueline Mejia, Glenda Litong, Wilfred Asis and Erlinda Senturias. With the appointment of Sarmiento, the human rights group argued that the Aquino administration would seemingly deny "admission of the atrocities and repression used against the Filipino people, the supposed objective of the law. "General Sarmiento, whatever her qualifications in the field of human rights might be today, cannot have a track record of involvement in or understanding or knowledge of the human rights situation during the martial law period," Arroyo said in his letter. Sarmiento manifests Pres. BS Aquino's arrogance that is bound to marginalize the tens of thousands of human rights violations victims right from the very start.

Lina Sarmiento
from the Martial Law Victims Board In the same breath that you ask us to give General Sarmiento a chance, we ask you TO PLEASE GIVE THE VICTIMS A CHANCE. LINA SARMIENTO FROM THE MARTIAL LAW VICTIMS CLAIMS BOARD Press Statement 24 February 2014 We denounce the appointment of Gen. Sarmiento as chair of the Human Rights Victims Claims Board (HRVCB). Sarmiento, the Aquino government junks altogether the state's admission of the atrocities and repression used against the Filipino people, the supposed objective of the law. Sarmiento is qualified for the job. However the Aquino government justifies it, the appointment of Gen. Sarmiento goes way beyond the issue of qualifications. Sarmiento, the people who fought the dictatorship cannot expect anything more from the current administration. Sarmiento, apologist of human rights violators, has no place in the ML victims' Claims Board - SELDA Aside from being a PC officer under Marcos, Sarmiento was the former head of the PNP's Human Rights Affairs Office during the Arroyo regime. "The Macapagal-Arroyo regime had the worst record of human rights violations post-Martial Law. Sarmiento's position as human rights officer under Arroyo is similarly deplorable," Enriquez added. "We do not see any clear basis for the appointment of Sarmiento; only a conscious effort to discredit and dishonor Martial Law victims. Nothing personal, but does Lina Castillo Sarmiento "have a deep and thorough understanding and knowledge of human rights and involvement in efforts against human rights violations" committed during the Marcos regime? No such evidence on record. And such "deep and thorough understanding and knowledge of human rights and involvement in efforts against human rights violations" are mandated by law. Does Sarmiento "have a clear and adequate understanding and commitment to human rights protection, promotion and advocacy? Open to serious challenge. And yet she will head the Human Rights Victims' Claims Board? Lina Castillo Sarmiento as chair of the Human Rights Victims' Claims Board. It is unfortunate that her credentials do not meet the minimum standards, albeit exacting, set under Republic Act No. 10368, otherwise known as the "Human Rights Victims' Reparation and Recognition Act of 2013." General Sarmiento, whatever her qualifications in the field of human rights violations might be today, cannot have any track record of involvement in or understanding or knowledge of the human rights situation during the martial law period. Former police director Lina Sarmiento, the first woman to hold a two-star rank in the Philippine National Police (PNP), has been appointed head of the Human Rights Victims' Claims Board. I knew Sarmiento headed the Police Security and Protection Group which assigns bodyguards to very important persons or VIPs. Sarmiento as head of HRV Claims Board! Justice to all Martial Law Victims! Sarmiento manifests Pres. BS Aquino's arrogance that is bound to marginalize the tens of thousands of human rights violations victims right from the very start. The task of the Claim's Board is not only monetary compensation but most of all to render justice for the Martial Law victims. Thus, we demand to recall the appointment of Gen. Lina Sarmiento and we will vow to support the formation of a People's Claims Board.
