González Medina and Family v. Dominican Republic

On May 26, 1994, Mr. Narciso González Medina, a university professor and opposition leader, was forcefully disappearred as a result of his criticism of the Army and the then-President of the Republic, Joaquín Balaguer, as well as his participation in the public denunciation of electoral fraud in the context of the 1994 presidential election. This case also relates to the State's lack of serious, diligent, and effective investigations to clarify the facts, identify those responsible, and impose the corresponding sanctions.
