This case is about the right to have a judicial decision reviewed by a superior court. The victims had been found guilty by a first instance criminal court and their appeals to higher courts had been denied because admissibility requirements made it impossible for them to challenge facts and evidence that had been judicially determined at the first instance level. The Court found the State in violation of Article 8.2.h (Right to Appeal the Judgment to a Higher Court) of the Convention.
