On December 18, 1992, members of the "Colina Group" extrajudicially executed a Peruvian trade union leader, Pedro Huilca Tecse. At the time of the facts, the alleged victim was the General Secretary of the Confederación General de Trabajadores del Peru (Peruvian Workers Confederation). The “Colina Group" was a death squadron linked to the Peruvian Army’s Intelligence Service. The State subsequently failed to undertake a complete, impartial and effective investigation into the facts. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights.
