Comprehensive Agreement On Respect For Human Rights And International Humanitarian Law

The resumption of peace talks between the Philippine government and the KPP/NPA/NDF in Oslo, Norway in April and June 2001 notably implemented the modality for the implementation of the CHR-HVR. The important issue of this modality of implementation is the political authority that will implement the principles of human rights and international humanitarian law. According to the Philippine government, since sovereignty is indivisible, it is the only Philippine government that has the exclusive power to implement the entire HVR caHR, including the power to stop, prosecute, attempt and impose sanctions against human rights violations. The CPP/NPA/NDF claims otherwise. The CPP/NPA/NDF argues that it has its own legal and judicial system and is well in a good capacity to exercise its power to stop, prosecute, attempt and punish human rights violations. The debate is raging and negotiations are continuing. Once the issue of modality and political authority is resolved during the resumption of peace talks, there will be no stop for the full implementation of the CAHR-IHL, which will go a long way in promoting and improving a climate of peace in the Philippines. This agreement must respond to the needs arising from the concrete conditions of the Filipino people with regard to violations of human rights and the principles of international humanitarian law and find principled ways to bring justice to all victims of such violations. „Duterte ignores international humanitarian law, if not intentionally, everyone.” The best principles of human rights are universality, indivisibility and interdependence, as well as solidarity. During the period from June 1996 to March 1998, a further 5 agreements were concluded after a total of fifteen cycles of formal and informal meetings.

These agreements have been (a) additional implementing arrangements for the identification document; (b) addendum to the joint agreement on RWA; (c) a comprehensive agreement on respect for human rights and international humanitarian law (CAHR-IHL); (d) the additional modalities for the implementation of the JASIG relating to staff security and consultation with a view to promoting peace negotiations; (e) joint agreement to support socio-economic projects by private development bodies and institutes. .
