Peru terrorist victims fail to collect reparation payments

0

Thousands of Peruvian families have failed to collect payments from the government, as reparation for family members who died during terrorist attacks in the 1980s and 1990s.

A recent investigation carried out by El Comercio has revealed that about 3,200 people, who are now deceased, failed to collect these reparations.

The report – which cross-examined information from the beneficiaries database with the Reniec’s death certificate list – found that 5 percent of the 69,132 people that had access to reparations, failed to collect them.

According to RPP, many of these people were hindered by laws that said victims’ spouses needed to be 65 years or older to collect the money, and victims’ parents had to over 80.

Last March, then Minister of Justice Juan Jimenez vowed to amend the law, but no change has been made so far, El Comercio reported.
