Summary: In this paper I wish to analyze the relationship between judicial truth and memory. I want to answer the following question: Can the prosecution produce truth and, therefore, can this really be the basis for the social production of memory? I also want to analyze the characteristics of the process of justice and peace, created by Law 975 of 2005, and the fact that in this process there is no confrontation for the production of truth. On the contrary, in this process there is a strategic production a truth, that of the perpetrator, with the notable absence of the truth of the victims. To do this I will analyze the statements made by two of the offenders within the justice and peace process and a letter from one of the paramilitary commanders. In all of them I want to show the exculpatory arguments that are put forward and the power that such arguments have for the production of truth and memory.
