Communication 1887 (Chile)
1887. This file included 20 cases which, according to the denunciations, allegedly involve a series of violations of basic human rights, in particular, the individual's right to life, liberty, and security; the right to protection against arbitrary arrest and to due process (Arts. I, XXV and XXVI of the American Declaration). Classification of these cases was handled in accordance with the criterion agreed upon at the thirty-third session.
In a note dated October 11, 1974, the Commission requested the Government of Chile to provide the appropriate information.
The Government of Chile, in a note of January 20, 1975 (no. 1237), replied to the request for information. That reply was supplemented through a note dated February 28, 1975 (No. 3665 ). In summary the replies in provided the following information.
The Commission examined this case at its thirty-fifth session (May 1975), together with the information provided by the Government of Chile. It decided the following:
Pursuant to points c and d of this decision, a note was sent to the Government of Chile on August 5, 1975. As for point a, a note was sent to the claimant on that same date.
At its thirty-sixth session (October 1975) the Commission locked into the status of this case and bearing in mind that the request for more information filed with the Government of Chile on August 5 was still in course, it decided to postpone examination of this case until its next session.
