Bolivia must urgently create a Truth Commission to clarify past human rights violations

, Index number: AMR 18/3234/2016

Amnesty International calls on the authorities – and in particular the Plurinational Legislative Assembly – to prioritize the debate on establishing a Truth Commission during this new parliamentary session (2016-2017), which began on 22 January. Such a Commission would enable full and truthful information to be brought to light on the grave human rights violations committed in Bolivia during the 18 years of military and authoritarian governments (1964-1982). The work of the Commission would also assist judicial proceedings relating to grave violations to progress and contribute to ensuring comprehensive reparation for the victims and their relatives.
