This report presents a study of ex-combatants' knowledge and opinions of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and Special Court (SC) in Sierra Leone.

Ex-combatants need the TRC and SC to help them reintegrate and reconcile with their communities, and the TRC cannot fulfill its aims without the participation of ex-combatants. This report provides information that can help depict and shape this relationship in a way that best promotes reconciliation, justice, and peace.

The main difficulty facing this process is that the vast majority of suspects are in Indonesia, and the Timorese government has not been able to secure their surrender. This issue has called into question the success of the entire operation and whether it was appropriate to pursue a hybrid court in Timor-Leste.

The Court was established to try "those bearing the greatest responsibility" for serious violations of international law and certain provisions of domestic law since November 1996. It has shown a clear understanding of its mandate and its management has been relatively efficient. Yet challenges remain in demonstrating its capacity to hold quality trials, as its focus shifts from investigations to trial work.

This paper provides an initial summary of the work of the Sierra Leone Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and points to some of the key difficulties it has encountered.

Despite this, the TRC has undertaken remarkable work in some areas.
