MANILA, Philippines- Dalawang United Nations Special Rapporteurs ang inaasahang bibisita sa Pilipinas, ayon sa Commission on Human Rights (CHR) nitong Miyerkules.

Sinabi ng CHR na bibisita si United Nations Special Rapporteur on the sale and sexual exploitation of children, including child prostitution, child pornography, and other child sexual abuse material, Mama Fatima Singhateh, sa bansa mula Nobyembre 28 hanggang Disyembre 2.

Susuriin niya ang sutwasyon at pag-unlad sa paglaban at pagpigil sa sale at sexual exploitation ng mga bata kaugnay ng international human rights norms at standards, base sa CHR.

Samantala, nakatakda ring bumisita si Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression and opinion Irene Khan sa bansa sa 2023.Sa kasalukuyan ay wala pang detalye ukol dito, ayon sa CHR.

Sa gitna ng scheduled visits, binigyang-diin ng CHR ang mahalagang kontribusyon ng Special Rapporteurs sa international human rights protection mechanism.

“As independent experts, they are expected and have been proven to act with probity and constant regard to human rights principles and standards. Their standing at the international level gives them the capacity to look at country situations with a fresh and unprejudiced eye,” pahayag ng CHR.

“As such, their findings, conclusions, and recommendations offer competent, objective, constructive, and specific advice to government actors on how to implement voluntarily undertaken human rights obligations, as well as emerging norms for the universal respect of all human rights,” dagdag nito.

“These visits result in the publication of findings, conclusions, and recommendations which aim to improve the realization of human rights on the ground.”

Hinikayat naman nito ang national government “to recognize the competence of special procedures mandate-holders by issuing a standing invitation to them to visit the country and conduct independent assessments of the human rights situation on the ground.” RNT/SA
