Community of San Mateo de Huanchor and Its Members v. Peru
Inter-American Commission on Human Rights
Case 504/03, Inter-Am Comm’n H.R., Report No. 69/04 (2004)
The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights received a petition filed on behalf of the Peruvian community of San Mateo de Huanchor (the community members) (plaintiffs) against the government of their nation (defendant). The community members alleged that Peru was responsible for pollution that violated the American Convention on Human Rights, an international legal document to which Peru was a signatory. Peru argued that the petition was inadmissible because the community members had not exhausted all possible remedies under domestic law.
