    • May 30th. 1992, Alfonso Martin del Campo’s sister and brother in law were killed. Alfonso was detained illegally by Mexico’s City authorities, as a likely responsible for the two killings, through acts of torture, the authorities forced him to confess the killings. From the obtained confession, the authorities produced the evidence to support the accusation.
      Unfortunately Alfonso ran into the inefficiency, corruption, and brutality of Mexican justice and without more evidence he was sentenced to 50 years in prison.
      This mexican case was the first one in the Interamerican Court of Human Rights.
      Alfonso is fighting for justice. This is his story.
