Tibi v. Ecuador

On September 27, 1995, Mr. Daniel Tibi was forcibly detained without a court order for his supposed involvement in drug trafficking. During his detention, state authorities tortured, beat, burned and asphyxiated him in order to gain a confession. Mr. Tibi was released on January 21, 1998. The State did not grant Mr. Tibi the possibility of filing a remedy against the mistreatment received during his detention, and there was no prompt and simple remedy that he could file before a competent court to protect himself from the violations of his basic rights. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights and the American Convention to Prevent and Punish Torture.
