UN admits international claim in favor of former president Ricardo Martinelli
  • Ricardo Martinelli

The case presented by the lawyer Luis Eduardo Camacho González, refers to facts related to the illegal and arbitrary detention, due process, physical and mental personality and the political rights of Ricardo Martinelli, all of them related to the process known as "Punctures".

The Human Rights Committee of the United Nations admitted the international claim presented in favor of former President Ricardo Martinelli Berrocal against the Panamanian State.

It is indicated that by reference note G / SO215 / 51PAN (15) signed by the Special Rapporteur on New Communications and Measures Yuval Shany it was reported that the case was registered under the N | 3598/2019, and the Panamanian State was required to issue its considerations regarding the human rights violations raised in the communication.

The case presented by the lawyer Luis Eduardo Camacho González, refers to facts related to the illegal and arbitrary detention, due process, physical and mental personality and the political rights of Ricardo Martinelli, all of them related to the process known as "Punctures".

The claim also refers to the disqualification of candidates for the positions of deputy and mayor, decision adopted by the Electoral Tribunal on April 25, 2019.

This would be the second international claim admitted against the State of Panama, since in March the Working Group on Arbitrary Detentions of the Human Rights Committee of the United Nations admitted a claim also filed on behalf of Ricardo Martinelli, granting them a term to that the respective considerations be issued.

Should international responsibility be determined for these acts, in violation of any of the rights recognized in the Covenant, there may be a responsibility of the public servants who caused the State to incur in such international noncompliance with their actions, which could imply a internal process of subsequent liability through the right of "repetition".
