the creation of the Truth Commission

In the Central African Republic, President Touadéra began his re-entry on Friday, July 16. In his speech, he mentioned the creation of the Truth, Justice, Reconciliation and Separation Commission (CVJRR), whose eleven commissioners swore in early July. The CVJRR is one of the recommendations to end the crisis in the Bangui Forum in 2015, which was addressed in the Khartoum Agreements of 2019. The eleven Commissioners met to compose their agency.

Edith Douzima, a lawyer recognized in Bangui, takes over as head of this long-awaited CVJRR. She wants to start working as soon as possible: “I think there is no more time to waste and we must already start laying the groundwork for our actions.”

Recommended by the Bangui Forum in 2015 and included in the Khartoum Agreements of 2019, it should in particular make it possible to break the impunity for impunity: “It is the issue of impunity that is the cause of the diseases in this country. We believe that we must do a lot of work for justice. ”

Another goal, reconciliation: “Social justice is falling apart due to the repeated crises in the country and therefore we believe that we must put together our knowledge and expertise. We must put everything in place so that there will be real reconciliation and not lip-hunting. ”

National consultations were held with 2000 Central Africans. Among the recommendations is to take into account the serious crimes committed since 1959: “Everyone expects a lot from this Commission and I believe that it should be given the means to do so. Without the funds, we can not do much. ”

This new, newly formed team plans to hold its first working meeting on Monday 19 July.
