The commission released a page report 23 November , which took 9, testimonies, offered an extensive chronology of events, documented 46 deaths, allegations of torture, and more than 4, cases of employees dismissed for participating in protests. The report criticized the security forces for many instances when "force and firearms were used in an excessive manner that was, on many occasions, unnecessary, disproportionate, and indiscriminate;" and found that certain abuses, such as destruction of property, "could not have happened without the knowledge of higher echelons of the command structure.
