MC 160-11 - Kevin Cooper, États-Unis

On August 3, 2011, the IACHR granted precautionary measures in favor of Kevin Cooper, who is detained in the United States pending the execution of the death penalty since 1986. The application for injunction was filed in the context of a communication on the alleged violation of rights enshrined in the American Declaration. Through the measures, the Commission asked the U.S. State to refrain from executing the death penalty pending the opportunity to decide on the petitioner's claim regarding the alleged violation of the American Declaration.
