The Inter-American System of Human Rights and Transnational Inquiries

  • Javier Dondé-Matute


This chapter examines the developments that the Inter-American System of Human Rights has established in relation of transnational inquiries. Though there is no case before the Inter-American Court concerning mutual legal assistance in criminal matters directly, this study focuses its attention on the interpretation of the due process rights that could be applicable in international cooperation specifically with regard to the Inter-American Convention on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters and Fundamental Rights.
