Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I can see why they would like to liken this process to the South Africa's truth and reconciliation commission, but it bears little likeness to it.

From Wikipedia:
"The commission was empowered to grant amnesty to those who committed abuses during the apartheid era, as long as the crimes were politically motivated, proportionate, and there was full disclosure by the person seeking amnesty."

If the UK would set up a true Truth and reconciliation commission, full disclosures from soldiers involved in crimes would probably have interesting answers to questions about who ordered what. Questions I suspect the UK government would prefer never to be answered.
