Citizen intervention in the tutela against the Inspector General for failure to protect an individual in great danger

Dejusticia
August 25, 2010

The intervention relates to a motion for legal protection in which a victim of a serious violation of his human rights, in spite of being in an unusual and extreme security risk, received no protection from existing security programs. Dejusticia requests the Constitutional Court to take the necessary steps in order to crease the violation of the plaintiff’s fundamental rights and to consider that this case is one of many that exist today in the country, where victims and witnesses of the conflict did not receive effective, adequate, and specific protection, and, therefore, declare that there is an unconstitutional state of affairs. If this were the case, the Court should issue the necessary orders for the different institutions that are responsible of protection programs to appropriate them to the minimum of rationality imposed by the Court and to adapt them to the conditions of the Colombian context.
