COMMUNICATIONS ADDRESSED TO THE COMMISSION

Communications being processed

During its two sessions in 1973 the Commission examined 35 cases pertaining to the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Cuba, Chile, Ecuador, the United States, Guatemala, Honduras, and Uruguay.

A brief summary is presented below in relation to the processing and decisions adopted regarding each of the aforementioned communications. It should be noted that the claimants, not the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, are responsible for the classification of acts indicated at the beginning of such summaries (arbitrary arrest, murder, torture, etc.). The Commission is not passing judgment on such allegations and is not requesting any statement regarding any of them, in as much as it has not yet considered the merits of some and has decided to file others without further action because the alleged violations was not proved, because the national authorities had adopted measures for ending the violation or for restoring the violated right or rights, or, finally, because claims were, in accordance with Article 39.d of the Regulations, declared inadmissible in that the events or situations referred to bore no relation to a disregard of human rights by the government against which the communication was directed.
