This case is about the forced disappearance of Mr. Santiago Gómez Palomino in 1992. Members of the Peruvian Military organization known as the Colina Group abducted him from his home and despite efforts from family, his whereabouts were never determined. The State failed to afford a judicial proceeding or an effective investigation on Mr. Gómez Palomino's disappearance. Based on this failure, the Court found violations of both the American Convention of Human Rights and the American Convention on Forced Disappearance of Persons.
