Intervention on the constitutionality of the victims law (Land restitution)

Dejusticia
May 4, 2012

DeJusticia addressed the Constitutional Court in regards with a law suit established against the Victims Act. We support three charges of the lawsuit: the first one, to include in various articles of the Act the grounds of “forced abandonment”; the second one, to declare unconstitutional the penalty to victims who, through non-legal recourse’s, occupy the lands awaiting to be restored; and the third one, to declare unconstitutional the presumption the law brings for the opposing party. In another charge we differ from the applicants regarding the Abandoned and Forcefully Stripped Land Registry, because we believe that it does need to be a procedural requirement for the restitution action.
