On May 19, 20 and 21, and December 13, 1995, the newspaper “La Nación” carried a number of articles written by journalist Mauricio Herrera Ulloa. The articles attributed certain illegal acts to Félix Przedborski, Costa Rica’s honorary representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency in Austria. Herrera Ulloa was subsequently found guilty on four counts of defamation. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights.
