The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

IN ITS sec­ond ses­sion, Venezuela’s Na­tional Con­stituent As­sem­bly will in­stall the non-par­ti­san Com­mis­sion for Truth, Jus­tice, and Repa­ra­tion for Vic­tims, which will be tasked with re­view­ing and de­ter­min­ing the re­spon­si­bil­ity of per­pe­tra­tors of vi­o­lent po­lit­i­cal acts over the past few years.

The spe­cial com­mis­sion will also seek to pro­mote peace and pre­vent fur­ther vi­o­lent acts di­rected at the Bo­li­var­ian Rev­o­lu­tion­ary gov­ern­ment. Former Venezue­lan for­eign min­is­ter and As­sem­bly Pres­i­dent Delcy Ro­driguez said the com­mis­sion would be in­stalled “for the sake of peace in our home­land”.
