An Urgent Appeal to the Philippine Senate to Reject House Bill No. 7814

March 08, 2021


INCITEGov, a community of advocates who firmly believe in the democratic process and the rule of law as the bedrock of Philippine society, joins the growing voices of opposition against House Bill No. 7814 (HB 7814) which amends Republic Act No. 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
 

This bill, passed by the House of Representatives on March 2, 2021, is unconstitutional for its provisions denying the basic right to due process of law and its outright presumption of guilt for persons suspected to be involved in the illegal drug trade. Clearly, HB 7814 violates international human rights standards and the general protection to due process of law provided in Section 1 and particularly, Sections 14.1 and 14. 2 of the Philippine Constitution's Article III - Bill of Rights which enshrine every citizen's right to life, liberty, or property, to due process of law, and presumption of innocence until proven otherwise.
