The Judgment on preliminary objections, merits, reparations and costs (hereinafter “the Judgment”) delivered by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (hereinafter “the Inter-American Court,” “the Court,” or “this Court”) on November 26, 2010. In the foregoing Judgment, it was established that Messrs. Cabrera García and Montiel Flores were arrested by an Infantry Batallion of the Mexican Army in the State of Guerrero and subject to cruel, inhumane, and degrading treatment. As such, the Court declared that the United Mexican States (hereinafter the “State,” the “State of Mexico,” or “Mexico”) was responsible for the violation, to the detriment of Messrs. Cabrera García and Montiel Flores, of their rights to personal liberty, humane treatment [personal integrity], fair trial, and the obligation to investigate acts of torture recognized in Articles 5(1), 5(2), 7(3), 7(4), 7(5), and 8(3) of American Convention on Human Rights (hereinafter “the American Convention” or “the Convention”), in relation to Article 1(1) of the foregoing treaty. Likewise, the Court considered that the State violated the right to a fair trial [judicial guarantees] and the right to judicial protection enshrined in Articles 8(1) and 25(1), respectively, in relation to Articles 1(1) and 2 of the Convention. Moreover, it declared the responsibility of the State for the violation of the obligation contained in Article 2, in relation to Articles 8 and 25 of the Convention, by extending the jurisdiction of the military courts to crimes that are not strictly related to the military discipline or to military legal interests. In conjunction, the Court found that the State violated Articles 1, 6, and 8 of the InterAmerican Convention to Prevent and Punish Torture, to the detriment of Messrs. Teodoro Cabrera García and Rodolfo Montiel Flores. 2. The reparations ordered in the Judgment were: 12. The State shall, within a reasonable period, conduct an effective criminal investigation into the facts of this case, particularly into the alleged acts of torture committed against Messrs. Cabrera and Montiel, to determine the corresponding criminal liabilities and, if * Judge Eduardo Ferrer Mac-Gregor Poisot, of Mexican nationality, did not participate in the hearing or deliberation of this Order, pursuant to that provided in Article 19(2) of the Statute of the Court and 19(1) of the Rules of Procedure of the Court.
