Synopsis

CCR joined as an amicus in urging the Inter-American Court of Human Rights to determine that the longstanding failure to investigate, prosecute, or prevent the crimes in this case (three in a series of hundreds of unsolved and poorly investigated disappearances, rapes, and murders of young women and girls in Ciudad Juarez over the past fifteen years) violated Mexico’s obligations under the American Convention, the Convention Belem do Para, and international human rights norms. Filed July 6, 2009.
