Noguera et al. v. Paraguay

This case is about the death of a minor enlisted in the Paraguayan armed forces, possibly due to hazing. Although investigations into the death were inconclusive, death of enlisted personnel, and in particular minors, due to hazing was not a rare occurrence in the Paraguayan armed forces. Eventually, Paraguay admitted international responsibility and the Court found it in violation of the American Convention.
