Constitutional Court v. Peru

During 1996 and 1997, there was a conflict between the constitutional organs of the State, namely the Judiciary, against the Executive and Legislature. The conflict arose out of President Alberto Fujimori's manipulation of the Peruvian Constitution to guarantee his re-election. In this case, related with the Ivcher Bronstein v. Peru case, Peru tried to withdraw its acceptance of jurisdiction of the Court to no avail. The Court found that the State violated the guarantees of the judicial process and judicial protection under the American Convention on Human Rights.
