Rosadío Villavicencio v. Peru

This case is about the botched prosecution of an intelligence officer in the Peruvian Army who had been infiltrated in a drug trafficking organization. The officer was prosecuted twice, in the ordinary jurisdiction and in the military jurisdiction, for the same crimes. Both prosecutions were marred by numerous errors of law and procedure, leading the Court to find Peru in violation of several articles of the American Convention.
