FIBGAR carried out a project to advise, accompany and support the Executive Branch of the Free and Sovereign State of Morelos, in Mexico, in the drafting of the Comprehensive Law on Attention to Victims of the State of Morelos and the relevant activities for its better implementation.
The project was dedicated to the design, structuring, implementation and monitoring of a legal framework to guarantee the rights of victims of human rights violations.
From the analysis of national and international regulations on the treatment of victims and the diagnosis of the specific situation of victims in the State of Morelos, the criteria and principles for the elaboration of the regulations were established.
In addition, a proposal for the articles of the Law was drafted, along with socialisation work through focus groups and the organisation of the Forum “The rights of victims in terms of truth, justice and reparation”.
On 17 July 2013, the Congress of Morelos unanimously approved the first Law on Attention and Reparation for Victims of Crime and Human Rights Violations, promoted by the State Government.
