'The CHR as Gender Ombud reminds the PNP of the unequivocal provisions of the MCW (Magna Carta of Women) on the incremental increase in the hiring women police officers tasked to address violence against women (VAW),' De Guia said in a statement.
Citing Section 9(a) of MCW, CHR insisted that the PNP, together with other allied services, is mandated to increase women recruits to reach 50 percent five years from the passage of MCW.
Section 9(a), Chapter IV of the MCW reads: 'Within the next five (5) years, there shall be an incremental increase in the recruitment and training of women in the police force, forensics and medico-legal, legal services, and social work services availed of by women who are victims of gender-related offenses until fifty percent (50%) of the personnel thereof shall be women.'
