Two months ago the Citizen Participation Council (CPC), approved amendments to the regulations of the Amending Law of Recognition of Heroes and Heroines, to begin the process of accreditation of persons or war veterans who believe they have been involved in a heroic war act.
According to the head of the CPC Assessment Committee of Heroes and Heroines, Francisco Bonilla, the problem lies in the temporary detention of the process due to the lack of a decision from the Executive, despite the CPC submitted the reforms to the rules of the standard. “The accreditation process does not start because the Executive has not approved the proposal or raised their observations,” said Bonilla.
The project indicates that individuals or war veterans who believe they have done a heroic act will have 60 days to get accreditation. They will have to meet several requirements, including describing the fact and provide documents to support it.
The Assessment Committee plans to analyze the applications of over 5,000 war veterans of the Cenepa, who participated in the conflict with Peru in 1995. To these are added the nominations of civilians.
