Practice Relating to Rule 100. Fair Trial Guarantees
Section A. General
In its judgment in the Videla case in 1994, which concerned the abduction, torture and murder of Lumi Videla in 1974, Chile’s Appeal Court of Santiago held that the 1949 Geneva Conventions “protect the human rights of the contestants in the event of external war or a conflict between organized armed forces within the State, which latter situation effectively prevailed in the country in 1974”. The Court stated that common Article 3 of the 1949 Geneva Conventions obliged parties to non-international armed conflicts “to extend humanitarian treatment to persons taking no active part in the hostilities or who have placed themselves hors de combat for various reasons, and prohibits at any time and in any place … the passing of summary sentences”. The Court found that the acts charged constituted grave breaches under Article 147 of the 1949 Geneva Convention IV and upheld the prison order issued against the accused.
