Post Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Alternative Prosecution Policy Framework for Political Violence of the Past

This framework document is an attempt by CSVR, in association with other stakeholders, to formulate a prosecution policy regarding past political violence. The document covers background to CSVR's alternative prosecution framework, general benefits and challenges to prosecutions for past political violence, 'classes' of offenders of 'gross human rights violations' that must be investigated and possibly prosecuted, processes/policies currently in place for past political violence prosecutions, obligations of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) with regards to prima facie cases of 'gross violations of human rights' of the past and last but not least prosecution priorities.
