(TAP) -- Some 65 individual reparation decisions were handed over on Friday to 65 resistance fighters who were victims of violations during the 1950s and their families, announced Khaled Krichi, member of the Truth and Dignity Commission.

At the time of the presentation of the certificates of resistance fighters, many of whom did not have the privilege of obtaining them and of the decisions on compensation, IVD President Sihem Ben Sedrine, stressed that the work of the Commission is human and "there is no such thing as zero risk".

"Although the state apparatus has not been cooperative, particularly their reluctance to provide the IVD with the necessary archives to fully carry out its work, the commission will spare no effort to guarantee the rights of victims," she promised.

"The decision to issue the resistance fighter certificates was taken before 31 December 2018, the date of expiry of the IVD's mandate," she said.

"No decision was taken by the Commission after that date," she further stressed, referring to the risk of accusing the IVD of violating the law.

According to her, reparation decisions affect three categories: resistance fighters, individual victims and groups (associations, parties and organisations that suffered injustices and violations at time of dictatorship).

Out of a total of 50,000 violation cases examined, 20,000 victims should obtain reparation, she pointed out, noting that reparation decisions will be delivered in lots.
