The facts of the case relate to the arbitrary detention of Iván Eladio Torres Millacura on October 3, 2003, in the city of Comodoro Rivadavia, and his subsequent torture and forced disappearance. The case also addresses the lack of due diligence in the investigation of the events, and the denial of justice to the detriment of the family members of the victim.
