Center For Human Rights and Humanitarian Law
ANNUAL REPORT 1979-1980
OBSERVATIONS THE COMMISSION CONSIDERS TO BE APPROPRIATE ON THE COMMUNICATIONS IT HAS RECEIVED
The Commission held its 46th, 47th, 48th and 49th sessions during the period covered by the present report, with a large number of cases having been opened on alleged violations of human rights that are upheld in the American Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Man and in the American Convention on Human Rights.
Under the provisions of the Statute in force at that time, the Commission considers that in its present annual report to the General Assembly, it is appropriate for it to make observations only on those cases that were processed and examined during the time-period covered by the report and in which human rights were proven to have been violated; it had also made pertinent recommendations to the governments against which the denunciations were directed, in application of the provisions of the corresponding articles of the Regulations then in effect.
As a result, the Commission is submitting to the General Assembly of the Organization those observations it considers to be appropriate on the cases that meet the requirements for publication.
To this end, the Resolutions published below are listed according to the date on which they were adopted by the Commission.
