Rep. Edcel C. Lagman filed yesterday House Resolution No. 1490 urging the House Committee on Human Rights to immediately conduct an inquiry in aid of legislation on the unilateral abrogation by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana of the 1989 UP-DND Agreement. 

The repressive policies of the Duterte administration have gone berserk as it is now open season for the military invasion of UP campuses.

The unilateral and baseless abrogation of the 1989 UP-DND accord red-tags the entire UP constituencies nationwide consisting of UP Diliman, UP Manila, UP Los Baños, UP Visayas, and the regional units in Baguio, San Fernando, Tacloban, Ming-ao (Iloilo), and Cebu.

Neither the House or the Committee on Constitutional Amendments can constitute itself as a Constituent Assembly in solitude.

A Constituent Assembly mandatorily entails the convening of the House and the Senate in joint session to propose amendments to the Constitution.
