Practice Relating to Rule 132. Return of Displaced Persons
In 2006, in its initial report to the Committee on the Rights of the Child under the Optional Protocol on the Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict, Guatemala stated:
A crucial aspect of the process of reintegrating thousands of Guatemalan refugees or displaced persons into society was the adoption of a law relaxing the requirements for personal identification documents indicating the civil status of persons affected by the destruction of civil registration records in the armed conflict. Congressional Decree No. 73-95, the Act on Personal Documentation of the Population Displaced by the Internal Armed Conflict, was adopted for that purpose.
