Victims' Rights to a Remedy and Reparation
PAPER: Victims' Rights in the Law Establishing the South Sudan Commission on Truth, Reconciliation and Healing
This paper sets out victims' rights to a remedy and reparation in the context of the establishment of the Commission for Truth Reconciliation and Healing (CTRH) in South Sudan.
Public consultations on the establishment of the CTRH took place in South Sudan during April-June 2022, including consultations with some survivor groups. Survivors from across South Sudan came together in June 2022 to establish a National Survivors network, and produced their own statement on the CTRH which was presented to Ministers in Juba.
A draft Law is being drafted by the Ministry of Justice and Constitutional affairs, and is expected in the last quarter of 2022.
