PNP told to expand investigation scope of PNP Women and Children Protection Desks

 

By Rose de la Cruz

 

Bagong Henerasyon Rep. Bernadette Herrera-Dy has asked Philippine National Police Chief Gen. Ronald dela Rosa to expand, soonest, the scope of investigation jurisdiction of the PNP Women and Children’s Desks to include LGBT (lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender) community for them to get the respect and support of society..

 

She said that although the Sexual Orientation or Gender identity or Expression (SOGIE) Equality bills of the House and Senate have not yet become law, she believes the country’s laws against rape, sexual harassment and human rights can be cited by the PNP as basis to include LGBT cases in the expanded scope of a Women, Children and LGBT Protection Desk. The PNP can also cite as basis its own Operations Manual, Criminal Investigation Manual and Human Rights Manual.

 

A Women, Children and LGBT Protection Desk in the PNP would also be considered a pro-active measure on the part of PNP Chief dela Rosa and the rest of the PNP leadership, particularly on the protection of human rights, she said.

 

It would indeed be a positive step to let the Filipino people know that their PNP cares about LGBT victims of crime, she added.

 

With a Women, Children and LGBT Protection Desk already in place, the Filipino people would be further assured that when the SOGIE Equality bills become law, its provisions would be immediately implemented by the PNP, and earn for the PNP the respect and support of the LGBT community, Herrera-Dy explained.

 

She said she would plead with the Senate to prioritize their SOGIE Equality version, SB 1271, so that the LGBT community will gain from its anti-discrimination protections at the soonest possible time.
