COALITION PROVISIONAL AUTHORITY ORDER NUMBER 90


SPECIAL TASK FORCE FOR COMPENSATING VICTIMS OF THE
PREVIOUS REGIME


Pursuant to my authority as Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA),
and under the laws and usages of war, and consistent with relevant U.N. Security Council
resolutions, including Resolutions 1483 and 1511 (2003),

Understanding that justice for the crimes of the past regime demands proper
compensation for the victims and their families,

Acknowledging that under the former regime, many lost their jobs, their property and
their lives because they opposed the regime, refused to join the Ba`ath party or simply
were related to someone considered by the previous regime as an opponent,

Noting that compensating victims of past crimes is a complex undertaking involving
many thousands of people,

Recognizing that ultimately the offenses committed by the past Iraqi regime against Iraqi
citizens should be compensated by Iraqis in accordance with Iraqi standards of justice
and through Iraqi means,

Desiring to help the process of correcting these injustices of the past to begin quickly,

I hereby promulgate the following:

Section 1
Establishment


1) The Special Task Force on Compensating Victims of the Previous Regime
(“Special Task Force”) is hereby established.

2) The Special Task Force shall be composed of a Chairman and two Assistant
Chairmen. The Chairman shall be appointed by the Administrator of the CPA and
shall head the Special Task Force. The Assistant Chairmen shall be selected by
the Chairman and shall assist in the work of the Special Task Force.
