Pacheco Teruel et al. v. Honduras

In May 2004, 107 suspected MS-13 gang members died in a fire in the San Pedro Sula Prison in Honduras. This case highlights states’ obligation to protect prison inmates, and diverges from other cases because the Court agreed to keep specific sums awarded as reparations confidential pursuant to a friendly settlement. The Court found violations on the American Convention on Human Rights.
