• LAW PASSED TO PROTECT PWD’S

    0

    Republic Act 9442 or the Magna Carta for Persons with Disabilities gives a person with disability (PWD) the right to sue a person who will treat him with “disrespect and condescendence.” Amalia Decena, president of Handicapables Association of Cagayan, said there are cases filed at the Commission on Human Rights related to bullying. However, Decena said the cases were settled since most offenders were relatives of the victims. “With the passing of the Magna Carta for Persons with Disabilities, we will no longer tolerate anyone who humiliates or bullies a [PWD] and we will run after those who will mistreat [PWDs],” she said. Decena called on all persons with disabilities to assert their rights and privileges stipulated in the law.
