Anzualdo Castro v. Peru


On December 16, 1993, Mr. Kenneth Ney Anzualdo Castro, a university student, was riding the bus home from school. A light blue car intercepted the bus and three persons, who identified themselves as police officers, forced Mr. Anzualdo Castro into their car. That was the last time Mr. Anzualdo Castro was ever seen. The Court found violations of both the America Convention of Human Rights and the American Convention on Forced Disappearance of Persons.
