Maqueda v. Argentina

This case is about the arrest, trial and detention of a university student who had been accused of having participated in an attack against an army barrack. Although some members of the student organization he belonged to had carried out the attack, he did not participate. The Court dismissed the case before it decided on its merits, as the parties had reached a friendly settlement agreement providing for the release of Mr. Maqueda.
