Almost simultaneously with the presentation of radical legislators Mario Negri and Luis Naidenoff, two civil organizations linked to the defense of human rights also appeared before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) to request a precautionary measure to end the internment compulsory in the sanitary isolation centers that Governor Gildo Insfrán maintains in Formosa
According to the presentation of the civil society organizations Bases Republicanas and CADAL, the people housed against their will in these centers “are victims of multiple violations of their human rights”, in “state centers with unacceptable and unworthy sanitary conditions, buildings and abuse “. The complaint also warns about provincial measures “that affect the normal re-entry to the province of residents who are outside of it.”
In the presentation, it is argued that “the restrictions and prohibitions established by the Provincial Government and the application of those measures by public officials result, in this context, arbitrary and unreasonable. Moreover, throughout these more than nine months they have effectively affected, or permanently endangered, the legal assets protected by the right to life, health, dignity, privacy, free movement, work and property of many citizens ”.
The complaint warns the IACHR that the affected persons are “staying in places that are not prepared for the accommodation of people, without hygiene conditions and in poor facilitiess, shaping a picture of situation that endangers his life and personal integrity, as well as the thousands of people awaiting entry to the Province of Formosa ”.
The brief also mentions the breach by Formosa of numerous judicial decisions, among which one of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation stands out (“Lee, Carlos Roberto and another c / Consejo de Attention Integral de la Emergencia Covid -19 Province of Formosa s / amparo – collective protection ”) in which it was ordered“ to the province of Formosa to provide the necessary means in order to guarantee effective entry into the provincial territory, with compliance with the sanitary measures it deems pertinent, of all citizens who have requested it, within a maximum period of fifteen business days from the date of the resolution, adjusting the program to constitutional guidelines ”.
“Faced with this very serious situation, Bases Republicanas and CADAL asked the IACHR to issue a precautionary measure that obliges the Argentine State and the province of Formosa to comply with the human rights standards established in the inter-American law and requiring to guarantee “that the mandatory quarantine period is fulfilled in private homes of the people who enter the Province, or in the private homes in which those in the provincial territory reside, or in places specifically equipped for the accommodation of people, which have all the necessary infrastructure, in safe and secure conditions. healthiness ”.
It is also requested that “the right to family reunification is prioritizedr and the protection of the rights of children, women, the elderly and sick people “and that” the mandatory quarantine period does not exceed 14 calendar days. “
