Velásquez RodríguezProvisional Measure
The request for protection concerns threats and harassment against people who have sought assistance from the Inter-American system for the protection of human rights. It also refers to the murder of Miguel Angel Pavón and Sergeant José Isaías Vilorio, who were witnesses in the forced disappearances of Mrs. Velásquez Rodríguez, Mrs. Fairén Garbi, Mrs. Solís Corrales, and Mrs. Godínez Cruz, whose cases were pending before the inter-American system.
The granting of measures sought to protect the life and physical integrity of those who had given statements and others those who would be called to do so.
