Past Human Rights Violations

Indonesia has committed to resolve various past human rights violations by establishing a series of policies as a form of its accountability. Various regulations indicate that the settlement mechanism of past human rights violations can be implemented through two ways: Adhoc Human Rights Court and Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Up to the period of 2012, these two mechanisms have been carried out in the presence of National Human Rights Commission investigations in which two Adhoc Human Rights Courts were successfully established to prosecute gross human rights perpretators in Tanjung Priok (1984) and Timor Timur (1999). Meanwhile, the second mechanism as being called Truth and Reconciliation Commission had gained a legal basis under the Law No. 27 Year 2004 on Truth and Reconciliation Commission and was later revoked by the Constitutional Court.

ELSAM, jointly with other civil society networks, continuosly advocates to ensure the settlement of various past human rights violations. This activity is carried out by promoting the existence of policies to resolve past human rights violations, consolidating victims, and running public campaign.

Currently, ELSAM is affiliated with Coalition of Justice and Truth Revealing (KKPK), a civil society coalition that collectively promotes the revealing of truth and justice for various past human rights violations cases.
