BBC Death squad arrests in Peru: "The generals, Juan Rivera and Julio Salazar, are accused of having links to the Colina group - a death squad formed to quash the Peruvian Shining Path guerrilla movement in the 1990s. In 1995 an amnesty law gave immunity to the Peruvian army in cases of human rights abuses, but last week the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ruled against this amnesty. The court, the legal arm of the Organisation of merican States (OAS), said the amnesty law was incompatible with the American Convention on Human Rights." Who says international law does not accomplish anything? At least it provided the excuse to grab generals implicated in the dirty war.
