Filing with the Inter-American commission on Human Rights

Complaint filed with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights

On December 19, 2012 a complaint was filed with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights identified under No. P 2319-12. This complaint reported the gross violation of fundamental rights embodied in the American Convention on Human Rights due to the fact that Martínez de Hoz’s preventive detention ordered in May 2010:

- Violated the guarantee against double jeopardy and double criminal prosecution (article 8.4) 
- Violated due defense rights since the same events have been re-categorized retroactively as crimes against humanity in a forced manner, for the sole purpose of avoiding the statute of limitations (article 8.2 (b) and (c)) 
- Prolongation of the detention for a period in excess of a reasonable one, within an exorbitantly lengthy legal process –more than 28 years- (article 8.1)
- Malice and cruelty (article 5.2)
