The Roll of Victims is the official list of Martial Law 1972-1986 era victims, including the place of incident of the violation against them, as resolved by the Human Rights Victims’ Claims Board (HRVCB), an independent and quasi-judicial body created by R. A. 10368 to receive, evaluate, process and investigate reparation applications of Human Rights Violations Victims, as defined by R. A. 10368. 

In providing financial assistance to Martial Law victims, the HRVCB, as per the HRVCB Board Resolution 002-2015 dtd March 04, 2015 Annex A “Legal Guide on Definition of Human Rights Violations and Awarding of Points Under RA 10368”, organized a point system hierarchy for the violations committed to a victim. It ranged from Ten (10) being the most severe to One (1) being the least; various abuses fall under different points which served as the reference of the organization in allocating assistance to the victim.  The Roll of Victims has been divided into this point system.

On May 11, 2018, the Human Rights Victims’ Claims Board (HRVCB) released Resolution No. 18-2018, which gave recognition to 126 motu proprio victims of Martial Law. The Board was given the power to recognize these victims motu proprio based on Sections 18 and 26 of R.A. 10368, as well as Section 20 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of R.A. 10368. These victims, whether they opted to seek reparation, shall be given recognition by enshrining their names in a Roll of Human Rights Victims to be prepared by the Board.

Section 20 of the IRR of R.A. 10368 states that “The Board may take judicial notice Motu Proprio of individual persons who suffered human rights violations as defined herein and grant such persons recognition as HRVVs and enshrined in the Roll of Human Rights Violations Victims.”
