Ten years ago, Guatemala's Historical Classification Commission delivered its landmark report on human rights violations committed during the 36-year internal armed conflict. Some of the Commission's key recommendations have never been implemented, depriving survivors, victims and their families of justice and reparation. In this document Amnesty International urges the Guatemalan authorities to release crucial military files; to allow exhumation of clandestine cemeteries; and to bring to justice those responsible for such crimes as extrajudicial execution and enforced disappearance.
