(Admissibility decision), Report No. 29/13

The petitioners filed a complaint on Nov. 21, 2006, alleging that the State of Chile had deprived the Community of its rights in a spring called the Socavon de Chusmiza, by granting the water rights to a corporation.  The Commission decided that the claims based on articles 8 (right to a fair trial), 21 (right to property), 22 (freedom of movement), 24 (right to equal protection), and 25 (right to judicial protection) of the American Convention were admissible.
