Height limit sa PNP, BJMP at BFP candidates, tinanggal na

Ni Leonel Abasola

Tuluyan ng tinanggal ang “height limit” sa mga nais pumasok bilang pulis, bumbero at jail guards.

Walang tumutol sa may 20 senador sa isinagawang botohan para tanggalin ang height limit bilang requirement sa mga aplikante sa Philippine National Police, Bureau of Fire Protection at Bureau of Jail Management and Penology alinsuno sa Senate Bill No. 3217 na inihain ni Sen. Gregorio Honasan.

Bumoto pabor sa panukala sina Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, Senate President Pro-Tempore Jinggoy Estrada, Senate Majority Floor Leader Tito Sotto, Joker Arroyo, Pia Cayetano, Frank Drilon, Chiz Escudero, T.G. Guingona, Gringo Honasan, Ping Lacson, Lito Lapid, Loren Legarda, Bongbong Marcos, Serge Osmeña, Koko Pimentel, Ralph Recto, Bong Revilla Jr., Sonny Trillanes at Manny Villar.

Hindi naman nakaboto sina Senador Miriam Defensor-Santiago at Edgardo Angara. Si Santiago ay may sakit, habang nasa Singapore naman si Angara.

“Heightism” or discrimination based on height is a reality today that has been practice among law enforcement agencies in the country, “Height discrimination unnecessarily limits quality choice while promoting social injustice. Height may be a consideration in tasks requiring certain physical activities but not all who are short are physically, much less intellectually, impaired,” punto ni Honasan.

Ibinasura ang requirement na itinatakda ng Section 30 ng Republic Act (RA) 6975 o ang Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Act of 1990, as amended by RA 1998.

“The Philippine Constitution affirms the principles of employment and non-discrimination. While it is right for hiring institutions to employ people for their intellect, for their drive and for what they can bring to the organization, it is wrong to deny them for reasons of creed, color, culture, gender identity or height” paliwanag pa ni Honasan.
