Roque Files for Party List Representative


Reference: Atty Harry L. Roque 09175398096

UP Law Professor and Activist Lawyer Harry Roque filed today his Certificate of Nomination as first nominee of KABAYAN (KAlusugan, paBAhay, kabuhaYAN) , a multi-sectoral party list dedicated to the promotion of the economic rights of heath, housing and livelihood.

“I have devoted 35 years of my life using the law as a tool for the protection of Political and Civil Rights. Truth though is much as we have  had many gains by way of jurisprudence, public interest litigation cannot address the root causes of of why our political and civil rights are violated. 35 years later, the problems remain the same; poverty, lack of livelihood, lack of housing, all of which lead to  lack of hope,” Roque added.

Roque will run with his former law students as nominees of the KABAYAN. Roque is counsel for media victims of the Maguindanao massacre and for the family of Jennifer Laude.

He has successfully argued such cases as David vs. Arroyo, Ninez Cacho-Olivares v. Juan Miguel Arroyo, Salonga vs. Executive Secretary and most recently, challenged the constitutionality of the Cyber-crimes Act of 2009. He also procured a view from the UN Human Rights Committee that  Philippine Criminal Libel Law is inconsistent with freedom of expression.

Roque is a graduate of the University of Michigan, the UP College of Law, and the London School for Economics and Political Science.

    Atty. Roque, what is your stand on tobacco, which causes poverty and devastating harms to health, society, the economy, and the environment?

    MARAMI NAGSASABI, IN EVERY ELECTION, THE TOTAL NUMBER OF VOTES, PERCENTAGE WISE FOR ALL PARTY LIST CANDIDATE, EXCEEDS THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF VOTES CAST. LAHAT INA-ACCOMODATE NG COMELEC PARA MAGING CONGRESSMEN.I REFUSE TO BELIEVE NA NABIBILI ANG COMELEC PARA LANG MAGING PARTY LIST REPRESENTATIVE – NOON DAW P1MM LAMANG – MAS MADALI AT MENUS GASTOS NGA NAMAN
