The Right to truth in the Americas is a 2014 report, by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (OAS).
From Press Release:
With many States in the region facing enormous challenges in safeguarding the rights of thousands of victims after periods of dictatorship, internal armed conflict, and situations involving widespread violence, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) presents this report.
The Commission compiled information, through its various mechanisms, on the multiple, grave human rights violations that took place during those times. The phenomenon of forced disappearance was a constant, as with the use of the military criminal justice system and amnesty laws to exempt those responsible for human rights violations from being held accountable.
A lack of access to information about that had happened was also a common pattern, which in many case continues to be perpetuated. In some countries, concealing information was a deliberate policy of the State and even a "tactic of war".
