The Inter-American Court of Human Rights began its 92nd regular session in Colombia’s capital Bogota on Monday.
The 10-day long session will hold three public hearings including a Chilean child custody case, an Argentine freedom of press case, as well as a case about prisons in Brazil.
The secretary general of the Inter-American Court explained the court will not investigate Colombian issues because they do not interfere in the affairs of the host country. He did, however, acknowledge Colombia’s improvements in human rights issues.
“[Colombia’s] rulings have been absolutely harmonious. In Colombia there is a high development in the jurisprudential area and the Supreme Court, like the Constitutional Court and the State Council, has taken momentous decisions with the comprehensive reparation of victims, and not only from a economic point of view,” said the secretary general.
The session will conclude on September 2.
