Gangaram Panday v. Suriname

On November 5, 1998, Mr. Asok Gangrama Panday was killed in Suriname after being illegally detained in a building for deportees at the Zanderij Airport by the Military Police of Suriname. There was conflicting evidence about whether the victim had been tortured while imprisoned, with a state agent admitting that the victim's mood had been affected by his expulsion from the Netherlands and that this psychological condition had been intensified by his detention. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights.
