Interviews published in the Algerian French-language daily el-Watan on August 20, 2005 and the Algerian French-language daily Liberté on August 18, 2005 with Human Rights Watch's Eric Goldstein about the Charter for Peace and National Reconciliation and its failure to meet international standards of truth and justice. Searching for truth is one of the factors that contributes to the consolidation of peace, and regrettably, one cannot find that in this Charter. Although it has some positive components, it places the rights of victims of grave human rights violations in danger. The Charter also runs the risk of reinforcing the climate of impunity which has reigned in Algeria, and that has sustained human rights violations.
