03 March, 2003
Th e  Na t i o n a l   R e c o n c i l i a t i o n Commission commenced public hearings on Tuesday, January 14, 2003 at Old Parliament House in Accra.  The opening ceremony was h o n o u r e d  wi t h   g r e e t i n g s   f r om Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Alex Boraine, former chair and deputy chair, respectively, of the South
African Truth and Reconciliation Commission; Mary Robinson, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights; and Rev. Matthew Hassan Kukah,   forme r  member of   the Nigerian Human Rights Violation Investigation Commission, among others.  Appropriately, there was no detectable partisan flavour to the  event; the only government member to speak was the Attorney General, whose remarks were detailed and balanced.
