    March 24
    International Day for the Right to the Truth concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims


    The United Nations (UN) has designated March 24 each year to promote a human rights issue. This day is called the “International Day for the Right to the Truth concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims”.


    In 2006 the UN confirmed that people had the right to know the truth about gross human rights violations and serious violations of human rights law. Furthermore, this right was linked to Governments’ duty and obligation to protect and guarantee human rights, to conduct effective investigations and to guarantee effective remedy and reparations.
