Garrido and Baigorria v. Argentina

On April 28, 1990, Mr. Adolfo Argentino Garrido Calderón and Mr. Raúl Baigorria Balmaceda were detained by members of the Mendoza police force. They were never seen again. The State acknowledged full international responsibility and instead of immediately proceeding to the reparations stage, the Court granted the State and victims a six month period to reach an agreement on reparations and compensation. Because the parties could not come to an agreement during those six months, the Court issued a judgment for reparations and costs. As of the Court's most recent Monitoring Compliance with Judgment of November 27, 2007, the State has not complied with its obligation to investigate the facts which led to the disappearance of the victims and punish those responsible.
