First of all, generally speaking, the reparations that a human rights tribunal awards go instead to the victims. That's the main objective. Then there may be penalties, such as administrative or monetary sanctions, for example, but the primary role of a human rights tribunal is to remedy a violation that has been committed. We're talking about damages, and an amount of money is offered to the victim as compensation, as you see in other areas of law.
In addition to that, a tribunal may award declaratory relief by stating that a person's rights have been violated. There may also be various forms of injunction. For example, the tribunal could inform an organization or institution that it must take or stop taking a given action. Lastly, there could also be punitive sanctions. That's sort of what you were saying.
You have to think of the entire range of potential remedies that a tribunal can use. That's the benefit that this kind of institution represents. It affords a great deal of flexibility. In the area of language rights, a tribunal could opt for the remedies that we consider most appropriate in that field. They would be somewhat tailored to the situation.
