 TRC was set up after apartheid through the “promotion of national unity and reconciliation act ” 1995.

The commission was divided into three committees :

The human rights violation committee who investigated and decided upon all claims of human rights abuses from 1960 until 1964.

The reparation and rehabilitation committee , who provided victim support, restaration of dignaty to victims and to judge upon financial reparation ( paying back)
