Palamara Iribarne v. Chile

In March 1993, Mr. Humberto Antonio Palamara Iribarne was prohibited from publishing a book called Ethics and Intelligence Services, which addressed issues related to military intelligence and the need to bring it in line with ethical standards. Mr. Palamara Iribarne was prosecuted for two counts of disobedience and contempt of authority and correspondingly convicted. The Court found that the State violated the victim's rights to property, personal liberty, and freedom of thought and expression, while failing to judicially protect and observe judicial guarantees under the American Convention on Human Rights.
