Angola: From war to... what? No reconciliation without accountability

, Index number: AFR 12/006/1996

The Angola peace process, as set out in the Lusaka Protocol of November 1994, is nearing completion. Former enemies are striving to restrain old hatreds and build a Government of National Unity and Reconciliation. This document attempts to show how human rights abuses have proliferated in the absence of adequate safeguards. There is a need to confront the abuses of the past and to build guarantees to prevent a recurrence. Amnesty International recommends that action should be taken immediately to set up a minimum framework for the protection of human rights during the final phase of the peace-keeping operation and the initial period under the proposed Government of National Unity and Reconciliaton.
