Bayarri v. Argentina

On November 18, 1991, Mr. Juan Carlos Bayarri was detained as a suspected kidnapper in Buenos Aires. Mr. Bayarri was then detained for almost thirteen years based on a confession obtained during torture. Despite the fact that the Federal National Criminal and Correctional Appeals Chamber of Argentina recognized that Mr. Bayarri had been subjected to torture, Argentina failed to punish those responsible for his unlawful detention and did not provided any reparation for the violations he suffered. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights and the Inter-American Convention to Prevent and Punish Torture.
