The Inter-Church Justice and Peace Commission began to accompany the Naya community after their displacement in 2001. The Commission petitioned for the Inter-American Human Rights Commission to grant an injunction to protect the community, which was then granted in 2002. Laura Chaparro (right), a lawyer with the Inter-Church Justice and Peace Commission, is responsible for the legal processes related to the 2001 massacre, and follows-up on the legal processes related to the granting of the land titles. She is hopeful that the land titling process, which began this month, will be completed this year.
