Truth, Justice, Reconciliation: Morocco's Justice and Reconciliation Commission

September 12, 2008

On the Occasion of the 20th anniversary of the massacre of political prisoners in Iran (1988), the Boroumand Foundation (ABF) is pleased to announce the electronic publication of the English and Persian translations of Morocco's Justice and Reconciliation Commission' report, established by King Mohamed VI on January 7, 2004.  In the speech given on that occasion, the Sovereign conferred on the Commission a historical significance and entrusted in it great responsibility in defining it as a commission for truth and justice.

By translating and publishing the summary of the Commission, ABF is pursuing the goal of familiarizing Iranians who will have to deal with past and unremedied human rights abuses with the experiences of other nations who have opted for facing the truth and finding peaceful ways of seeking justice for the victims.
