Annual Report 1993
EAAF was invited by Amnesty International to investigate the so called "La Cantuta" case, involving nine disappeared students and a professor from the National University Enrique Guzman y Valle. The team was prohibited from visiting the grave site or see the remains, but was able to prepare a report about inadequacies of the government investigation of the case.
