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.
