Coc Max et. al v. Guatemala

This case is about an incident that took place in 1995 between an indigenous community, where refugees who had fled Guatemala during the civil war of the 1980s had returned, and a unit of the Guatemalan Army. The Army patrol killed several individuals, including children, during the clash. Eventually, the Court found Guatemala in violation of several articles of the American Convention for the events and the subsequent failure to properly investigate and provide justice to the victims.
