Violating the right to humane treatment established in Article 5(1) of the American Convention in conjunction with Article 1(1) of the same instrument to the detriment of the family members of the victims listed in Annex 1 to the Report on the Merits. With regard to the identification of the victims of the violations to the rights to freedom of movement and residence, and to property, because of the very nature of the facts of the case the Commission was unable to obtain accurate information that would enable it to specifically name all the victims of these violations. Given the intrinsic characteristics of the violations established, as well as the displacement and its consequences, the Commission gave special consideration in its merits report to the need to apply a broad understanding of the definition of victims, and to the need for the Colombian State to have a reparation measure that recognizes the community impact of the facts of the case. In this regard, the Commission informs the Court that in a communication submitted after the issuance of the merits report, the representatives of the victims: i) considered that the victims of the violation to the right enshrined in Article 22 of the American Convention are all of the inhabitants of Santo Domingo who, “on December 13, 1998 were obliged to abandon the town”; 1 and ii) specified other people as victims of violations to the rights to property, 2 to a fair trial, to judicial protection, and to mental and moral integrity. 3 1 See Appendix 1.
