At least 119 lawmakers voted for the CHR’s budget to be reduced to a measly ₱1,000 after House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez threatened to reduce the commission’s budget to zero for supposedly “always criticizing” the duterte regime.

In a report published by GMA News Online, Vilma Santos was revealed to have suffered an ulcer attack on the day that Congress voted to drastically reduce the CHR budget. The ulcer nearly forced Gov. Santos to be confined to a hospital.
