Abstract: The relationships between the circumstances in which amnesties are granted and Togolese lay people’s judgments of their acceptability were examined. The 351 participants were instructed to read stories- created by the authors -in which a former police officer testified in front of a commission to receive amnesty. The stories were based on a five factor design: Quality of the information revealed, presence-absence of apologies, opportunity given to the victims for telling their story, compensation, and punishment of the applicant. Several interactions involving the truth and the apology factors were observed: Acceptability required the simultaneous presence of several positive aspects. Key words: amnesty, acceptability, Togo
