This case is about the arbitrary arrest, torture, and killing, in 1990, of an elderly peasant in the high Andes by a unit of the Peruvian army. This was followed by the subsequent failure by the State to properly investigate and prosecute. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights.
