Chapter Summary

Memorandum reviews the arguments concerning admissibility with reference, first, to the arguments of the State, and then to the arguments of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. Hypothetical concentrates on three basic issues The first concerns the right to life and the nature and scope of the State's duty to investigate killings that may or may not be tied to State agents. The second issue concerns the scope of freedom of expression, ostensibly pitting the value of free access to information against that of restrictions arguably required to safeguard the right of third persons to life and physical integrity. The third issue also concerns the question of safeguarding rights, insofar as it seeks to explore the legitimate scope of provisional measures.
