Argentina, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights found the State of Argentina responsible for not having adopted reasonable measures to prevent the terrorist attack that occurred on July 18, 1994, as well as for not having fulfilled its duty to investigate the attack and its cover-up with due diligence and within a reasonable time frame. The Court also declared Argentina's responsibility for not having guaranteed real access to documentation regarding the attack.
