Peru: Case Sheet: Preventing Impunity

, Index number: AMR 46/014/2006

Amnesty International is concerned that the kidnapping and "disappearance" of Samuel Ramos Diego, Jesús Liceti Mego and Esaú Cajas Julca, by members of the military in 1990, may be left unpunished. Seven military officers were accused of the crime in June 2004. However, days before the case was due to be transferred to a different court, the judge closed the case in March 2006, alleging that forced disappearance was not a crime under Peruvian legislation at the time of the events.
