National Truth Commission Creates Website of Activities

Posted by Robyn Smith 

The National Truth Commission has announced that it will be publicizing it’s finding and activities on a website that should go live within the month. The Truth Commission’s decision to move to open its events and plans to the public appears to be in reaction to the negative backlash that came after an article appeared in a mainstream news publication that the Truth Commission would have a “secret” agenda. The so-called “secret” agenda was originally adopted to try to gain more testimonies of individuals involved on the side of the dictatorship but both the newspaper and the public are pushing to know what is happening with the commission.  In a move to make a compromise between protecting confidentiality and keeping Brazilians in the dark, the Truth Commission will allow some testimonies to be given secretly but, unless this is specified, all other testimonies and meetings will be made public.
