Nitong Setyembre 12, inaprubahan ng mga mambabatas ang P1,000 na budget ng Commission on Human Rights (CHR) para sa taong 2018. Kabuuang P678-milyon pa naman sana ang budget na hinihingi ng ahensya ngunit hindi ito inaprubahan dahil na rin maraming mambabatas ang dismayado sa performance ng CHR.
Ayon kay Mark Lopez, kilalang taga-suporta ni Pangulong Duterte, ang chairman ng CHR na si Chito Gascon ang dahilan kung bakit yan lang ang budget na kanilang nakuha. Dagdag pa niya, kung talagang nagmamalasakit daw si Gascon sa karapatang pantao, ang dapat niyang gawin ay mag-bitiw sa kanyang tungkulin.

Mangyaring basahin ang kabuuan ng Facebook post ni Lopez.
That Congress voted to give P1k annual budget for the Commission of Human Rights is simply a vote of no confidence in Chito Gascon.
Yes Chito, it's about you and your clearly biased leadership. You did nothing but abuse an office for your partisan activities.
If you really care about Human Rights, all you need to do is resign.
Of course it is expected that you and your dilawan elites will milk this issue and make you appear the underdog hero being bullied by a Congress that is so allied with a very popular president.
The thing is, it is also what your patrons did when they were in power.
Remember CJ Corona?
Now that you are at the receiving end, you have the option to cling to that post like what a trapo would do, and then continue with your destabilization efforts.
Yes we know you are part of the cabal who conceptualized the sordid plots which include Matobato, Lascañas, the Leni UN video, the Trillanes-Alejano ICC adventure, and the recruitment of Agnes Callamard and Phelim Kline as your allies. And we know your close coordination with church leaders and their hypocritical moves.
These are the activities that you all did, thanks in large part to taxpayer money that was put in the coffers of CHR.
Yes, we know how you keep on abusing the CHR to undermine this administration.
Yes, we know you are one of the leading figures in making our country look bad in the eyes of the global community.
Yes we know Mr. Gascon, that you really are not in this to uphold Human Rights in its purest sense.
You are here representing what is humanly wrong with politics!
Resign now Sir!
