This case is about slave labor used by a farm until the early 2000s in the State of Pará, in Brazil’s poor North-East, and the State’s repeated failure to stop the practice, punish those responsible and provide victims remedies. The Court found Brazil in violation of several articles of the American Convention, while it declined to exercise jurisdiction over some violations because the facts occurred before Brazil’s acceptance of the Court’s jurisdiction.
