**

Judge Diego García-Sayán, a Peruvian national, was not part of the Court in this case because at
the time he was sworn in, the State of Peru had already appointed a judge ad hoc pursuant to the
provisions of Article 10 of the Statute of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. Furthermore, Judge
Oliver Jackman did not participate in the deliberations and signing of the instant Judgment because, as he
informed, due to reasons beyond his control, he would be unable to attend the 73 rd Regular Session of the
Court.
