Peru: ICHR Upholds Judgement

The Inter American Court of Human Rights has upheld its condemnation of Peru for the massacre at the prison known as Castro Castro in 1992, in which 41 prisoners died. The Peruvian state had requested a review of the sentence, but the Court maintained its view that the state was responsible for the deaths, which occurred during the violent repression of an uprising by incarcerated members of Shining Path.
