AFP chief gets plaque of recognition from UNHCR

From the Philippine News Agency (Jul 11): AFP chief gets plaque of recognition from UNHCR

Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief-of-staff Gen. Emmanuel T. Bautista received a plaque of recognition from the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR) on Friday for his leadership in minimizing the effect of conflict to civilian populations.

The plaque was awarded by UNHCR Country Representative Bernard Kerblat after their meeting at the AFP general headquarters in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.

Kerblat cited Bautista’s achievements of humanitarian objectives in “assisting civilian populations affected by forced displacement.”

The UN official also acknowledged the AFP's Internal Peace and Security Plan "Bayanihan" for its “explicit references to major parts of the International Humanitarian Law, including internal displacement.”
