Pursuant to the Truth, Reconciliation and National Unity Act of 2018 and in order to foster reconciliation in the Seychelles, those individuals who provide a full and frank disclosure of their culpable acts or omissions in relation to any human rights violation and offer sincere apologies to the victim(s) shall be granted an amnesty in relation to the acts or omissions that were part of the disclosure and apology. A perpetrator who has been granted amnesty in respect of a violation shall not be criminally or civilly liable in respect of the acts or omissions that were part of the disclosure and apology. The amnesty shall not, however, affect any order by the Commission for remedies, reparations, or rehabilitation for victim(s) or the close relative of the victim(s) where the complaint is made by a close relative of the victim(s), petitioner, perpetrator, and any other person the Commission deems appropriate. Perpetrators who wish to apply for amnesty will be required to fill in an amnesty petition (available in English, Creole, and French). Those who require assistance in filling out the petition are entitled to seek assistance from legal representation. If they are unable to access legal aid, they will be supported by a member of staff of the Commission who is competent in amnesty proceedings. The Commission has already identified and liaised with a number of persons eligible for amnesty, however, it continues to urge anyone who believes they may have committed a violation within the mandate of the Commission to come forward and seek forgiveness in order to bring closure to both themselves and the victims of the violation, and help the people of the Seychelles move forward in unity.
