Slideshow about the obstacles facing victims and relatives of victims of the military regimes in Bolivia to have access to truth, justice and reparation for the violations suffered.
Bolivia was ruled by military and authoritarian regimes from 1964 to 1982, during which time human rights violations, including, extrajudicial executions, torture and illegal detentions, were widespread. According to local human rights organisations, around 150 people were victims of enforced disappearance.
Justice for many cases is still pending. For many years victims have been calling on the authorities for the disclosure of military files that could contain important information about the fate and whereabouts of the disappeared.
Law 2640 for “Exceptional compensation to victims of political violence during periods of unconstitutional governments” was passed on 11 March 2004. It established a set of compensatory measures such as free medical assistance, psychological rehabilitation and economic benefits to victims and relatives of those who suffered torture or enforced disappearance, among other human rights violations. Approximately 6,200 applications for compensation have been sent to the Ministry of Justice out of which 1,714 have been accepted as beneficiaries. Victims complain that requirements of the law were very strict and that left out many of the victims.
