2 The Commission has designated Commissioner Rodrigo Escobar Gil and Executive Secretary of the IACHR, Santiago A. Canton, as its delegates. Likewise, Elizabeth Abi-Mershed, Deputy Executive Secretary, and Silvia Serrano Guzmán, attorneys at the Executive Secretariat of the IACHR will serve as legal advisors. In accordance with Article 35 of the Rules of Procedure of the Inter-American Court, the Commission is enclosing with this communication a copy of Report No. 136/11 prepared in accordance with Article 50 of the American Convention, as well as a copy of the entire file before the Inter-American Commission (Appendix I) and the annexes used in drafting Report 136/11 (attachments). Said merits report was notified to the Bolivian State by means of communication of November 21, 2011, granting it a twomonth term to report on the implementation of the recommendations. The State requested an extension from the Inter-American Commission in order to report on compliance with the recommendations. The Commission granted a two-month extension to the State and requested that it present a report by no later than February 9, 2012. The Commission received the State's report on time. On December 28, 2011, the State submitted a supplementary report. The Commission submits this case to the jurisdiction of the Inter-American Court due to the need to obtain justice for the victims, in light of the lack of progress in compliance with the recommendations on the part of the State of Bolivia, which did not request an extension for such purpose. Regarding the recommendation to order comprehensive reparation in favor of the members of the Pacheco Tineo family for the human rights violations found in the report, the State indicated that it is taking "diplomatic and consular steps" to make contact with the Pacheco Tineo family. The Commission does not have information on the results of these efforts or on concrete reparation proposals. Regarding the recommendation to order administrative, disciplinary, and other measures to address the acts or omissions of the government officials who took part in the human rights violations found in the report, the State indicated that under applicable domestic law, any possible administrative offenses committed in the instant case are subject to statute of limitations, and therefore it is impossible to comply with this recommendation. Regarding the recommendation to adopt measures to ensure non-repetition, including training for officials in charge of immigration proceedings that could result in the deportation or expulsion of immigrants, and of proceedings for the determination of refugee status, the State indicated that "instructions" had been issued ordering immigration personnel to comply with the provisions established in the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol. It also indicated that workshops are being held to provide updated training on various subjects. In this regard, the Commission believes that the information provided is not sufficient to find that the State has effectively complied with the recommended measures to ensure non-repetition. For example, the subject matters of the training being conducted do not seem to be directly related to the violations that occurred in the instant case, which centers on the standards that apply to proceedings involving recognition of refugee status, as well as the guarantee of non-refoulement.
