I raised this matter with the Peruvian Prime Minister when I visited Peru in December 2004 and reiterated our ongoing support for implementation of the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).

We have actively supported the efforts of the TRC. This support has helped develop institutional capacity within this Commission in the regions most affected by the violence. The Peruvian authorities are now in the process of implementing the TRC's recommendations. We are currently supporting the work of the Human Rights Ombudsman's Office and the National Co-ordinator for Human Rights in this aim.
