Ticona Estrada et al. v. Bolivia
Judicial Protection | Right to Know the Truth | Deprivation of Liberty
Among other violations, the Court considered that the enforced disappearance of Mr. Renato Ticona Estrada represented a risk to his life, a situation aggravated by the systematic pattern of human rights violations in Bolivia at the time of the events. This systematic pattern was characterized by a planned policy of intimidation, harassment and extermination deployed against members of the National Left Movement and other opponents, using irregular armed groups or paramilitaries.
