Summary

The Secretariat has the honour to transmit to the Human Rights Council the report of the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Morris Tidball-Binz, on his visit to Argentina from 14 to 25 November 2022. In the report, the Special Rapporteur examines instances of institutional violence, particularly the unlawful deprivation of life resulting from the excessive use of force within the context of law enforcement; the phenomenon of deaths in custody and gender-based killings. The Special Rapporteur formulates recommendations to strengthen investigation and prosecution of such cases, improve accountability and reinforce the protection of the right to life in Argentina.
