Alfonso Martín del Campo Dodd v. Mexico

On May 30, 1992, Mr. Alfonso Martín del Campo Dodd, a Mexican and U.S. citizen, was illegally arrested and tortured by the Judicial Police of Mexico in an attempt to compel him to confess to murdering his sister and brother-in-law. The State sentenced Mr. Martín del Campo Dodd to fifty years in prison without access to effective remedies and without a thorough investigation into his case. The Court found that it could not exercise jurisdiction over this case because the alleged violations occurred prior to the State's acknowledgment of the Court's jurisdiction.
