Human Rights Victims'
Claims Board

Created under Republic Act No. 10368, the Human Rights Victims’ Claims Board is a quasi-judicial body that adjudicated the eligibility of human rights violations claims during the Marcos Martial Law (1972-1986). The funds for the reparation of the victims who suffered under the Marcos regime came from funds returned by the Switzerland to the Philippine government adjudged by the Philippine Supreme Court as Marcos’ Ill-gotten wealth. It ceased operations last May 12, 2018.
