September 1, 2014 Re: Case No. 12,745 Rigoberto Tenorio Roca et al. Peru Mr. Secretary: It is my pleasure to address you on behalf of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights for the purpose of submitting Case 12,745 – Rigoberto Tenorio Roca et al. with respect to the Republic of Peru (hereinafter “the State,” “the Peruvian State,” or “Peru”), to the jurisdiction of the Honorable Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The instant case is related to the detention, transfer, torture, and subsequent forced disappearance of Mr. Rigoberto Tenorio Roca as of July 7, 1984 by members of the Marine Infantry in the province of Huanta, department of Ayacucho. These facts took place in a context of systematic violations of human rights during the internal armed conflict in Peru, in a zone and in a period when the use of forced disappearance against persons perceived as terrorists or collaborators of terrorism was systematic and widespread. To this day no determination has been made as to the fate or whereabouts of Mr. Tenorio Roca and his forced disappearance has met with impunity. The State ratified the American Convention on Human Rights on July 12, 1978, and accepted the compulsory jurisdiction of the Court on January 21, 1981. Mr. Pablo Saavedra Alessandri, Secretary Inter-American Court of Human Rights Apartado 6906-1000 San José, Costa Rica Attachments
