Liberty Of Abode and Travel
SECTION 6, Philippines Constitution- The liberty of abode and of changing the same within the limits prescribed by law shall not be impaired upon lawful order of the court. Neither shall the right to travel be impaired except in the interest of national security, public safety or public health, as may be provided by law.
Manotoc Jr. v. CA -
A court may prohibit an accused from leaving the Philippines even if he was admitted to bail – necessary consequence of a bail bond
Marcos v. Manglapus –
Marcos wants to return to country - The right to return to one’s country is not among the rights specifically guaranteed under the Bill of Rights, though it may well be considered as
a generally accepted principle of international law, which is part of the law of the land. However, it is distinct and separate from the right to travel and enjoys a different protection under the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights.
