MANILA, Philippines — The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR) has began the process of drafting its comprehensive report on the human rights situation in the Philippines.

It opened the call for factual and analytical submissions on the human rights situation in the Philippines, in compliance with the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) resolution approved last year.

The UN office invited representatives of member states, civil society, UN system and members of the public to submit the reports that would assist it in compiling information relevant to the mandate of the HRC resolution.

The reports may be submitted to HRCreportPH@ohchr.org until Jan. 31.

According to the call for submissions, no individual case or investigation is necessary, with reports limited to about 5,000 words due to limited capacity.

“Accurate, verified information, reports and analysis are needed. Contributions of a general nature are also welcome. Identities of interviewees will be protected, with a clear request not to name victims and individuals. All information received will be corroborated and verified to accurately reflect trends,” said the OHCHR.
