CHR wants to ensure the security of remaining Parojinogs in prison

The Commission on Human Rights (CHR) wants to ensure the security of the remaining Parojinog clan members who are still in detention. Commission on Human Rights (Facebook / FILE PHOTO / MANILA BULLETIN) This after former Ozamiz City councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parojinog and his elder sister Melodina Parojinog Malingin recently died just two days apart while under government custody. Melodina died due to cardiogenic shock, and Ricardo suffered the same and was found dead in his jail cell on September 4. Ricardo and Melodina are both siblings of Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo “Aldong” Parojinog, who was killed together with 15 others in a police raid back in July 2017. The Parojinogs have been tagged as politicians involved in the illegal drug trade. While the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the CHR are looking into the true causes of their deaths, the CHR issued an urgent advisory and recommended that authorities “secure the protection of Reynaldo Jr. and Nova Parojinog who are still in detention.” “We note that Reynaldo’s two children – former Vice Mayor Nova Parojinog and Reynaldo Parojinog Jr. – remain in government custody. The CHR emphasizes that while criminality should not be countenanced, due process should not be compromised in the wake of deaths in custody,” the advisory stressed. The CHR also called on the government to “ensure a full and impartial autopsy as requested by the family, and guarantee that the remains of the Parojinog siblings will not be buried until such autopsy is undertaken.” While doing so, the CHR recommended that extra protection and security be given to medical examiners and pathologists conducting the autopsy. Should there be any more occurrences of deaths, custodial authorities are urged to report these to the CHR as part of their obligation under R.A. 9745 or the Anti-Torture Act. “The human rights of all persons, including suspects, detainees, and prisoners must be respected at all times. Accountability must be established following the deaths in custody,” the advisory read. It was signed on September 7 by Commissioner Chairperson Jose Luis Martin Gascon and Commissioners Karen Gomez-Dumpit, Gwendolyn Pimentel-Gana, and Roberto Eugenio-Cadiz......»»
