Philippines Government are liable to pay foreigners for damages incurred for Human Rights violations or denial of Due Process.

Thousands of Foreigners who have suffered at the hands of corrupt Philippines government officials like the Department of Justice, Bureau of Immigration or negligence by the Commission of Human Rights for not taking action in complaints filed can legally file for punitive damages in their own country.

stand-up-speak-outLegal injuries are not limited to physical injuries and may include emotional, economic, or reputational injuries as well as violations of privacy, property, or constitutional rights. Torts comprise such varied topics as auto accidents, false imprisonment, defamation, product liability, copyright infringement, and environmental pollution (toxic torts).

While many torts are the result of negligence, tort law also recognizes intentional torts, where a person has intentionally acted in a way that harms another, and in a few cases (particularly for product liability in the United States) “strict liability” which allows recovery without the need to demonstrate negligence.

The Alien Tort Statute (28 U.S.C. § 1350; ATS), also called the Alien Tort Claims Act (ATCA), is a section of the United States Code that reads: “The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of any civil action by an alien for a tort only, committed in violation of the law of nations or a treaty of the United States.” Since 1980, courts have interpreted this statute to allow foreign citizens to seek remedies in U.S. courts for human-rights violations for conduct committed outside the United States.

A tort, in common law jurisdictions, is a civil wrong[1] that unfairly causes someone else to suffer loss or harm resulting in legal liability for the person who commits the tortious act, called a tortfeasor. Although crimes may be torts, the cause of legal action is not necessarily a crime, as the harm may be due to negligence which does not amount to criminal negligence. The victim of the harm can recover their loss as damages in a lawsuit. In order to prevail, the plaintiff in the lawsuit must show that the actions or lack of action was the legally recognizable cause of the harm. The equivalent of tort in civil law jurisdictions is delict.

Most foreign countries recognise this Tort statue, it may be called by another term. Contact your attorney to get exact information in your country of residence.

Most attorneys will work for a small fee and percentage of punitive damages recovered.

The embassy of the violating country would be served the summons of the Tort filed.
