Alejandro Piché Cuca v Guatemala

The case concerned Guatemalan citizen Alejandro Piché Cuca, who on 27 April 1991 was recruited to the military by force.
The facts denounced in the communication of January 22, 1992, concerning Mr. Alejandro Piché's forced recruitment into the army are serious violations of the Guatemalan Government's obligation to respect and guarantee the right to personal liberty (Article 7), the protection of human dignity (Article 11) and the right to freedom of movement (Article 22), guaranteed in the American Convention on Human Rights, in connection with Article 1.1 of that same legal instrument.
