Salvador Chiriboga v. Ecuador

Between December 1974 and September 1977, Mr. Julio Guillermo Salvador Chiriboga and his siblings inherited property from their father, Mr. Guillermo Salvador Tobar. On May 13, 1991, the then Municipal Council of Quito declared the property to be of public utility in order to expropriate and take immediate possession of the property. Mr. Salvador Chiriboga and his siblings filed several lawsuits against the State’s authorities in order to resolve the declaration of public utility, but to no avail. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights.
