A document set forth during the Liberian National Truth and Reconciliation process declaring the real and present qualities of the tragedies that the country has endured during its recent times of civil war. It also cals upon the government and people to address reparatively all human rights violations perpetrated against victims during that bloody time and proposes political changes ostensibly geared towards reducing civil instability.
