Uzcátegui et al. v. Venezuela

Uzcátegui et al. v. Venezuela

On January 1, 2001, members of the state police extrajudicially executed Néstor José Uzcátegui and persecuted Néstor's brother, Luis Enrique Uzcátegui, in reaction to his search for justice for the death of his brother. There was no investigation into Mr. José Uzcátegui's death, and no one was ever tried or punished for the crime. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights.
