FILED BY THE
connection with the events that began on May 14, 1988
February 16, 1992 the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights pursuant to
Article 61 of the American Convention submitted for consideration of the
Inter-American Court of Human Rights, a complaint against the Government of
Peru, in connection with the events that began on May 14, 1988 in the District
of Cayara, Province of Victor Fajardo, Department of Ayacucho.
In March 1992 the Government of Peru filed twelve preliminary objections
to the complaint submitted by the Commission.
In a judgment issued on February 3, 1993, the Court declared that the
petition was filed after the expiration deadline stipulated in Article 51.1 of
the Convention, and did not address the merits of the case.
Because it considered this to be a matter of general interest, the
Commission, at its 83rd session, decided to publish in a single document the
complaint, Report Nš 29/91 of February 20, 1991, Resolution Nš 1/91 of
November 11, 1991 and the response of the Government of Peru to that Report,
which were attached to the complaint filed by the Commission.
