In recent years the Inter-American Court of Human Rights has taken cognizance of, and pronounced upon, a cycle of cases concerning massacres, disclosing the occurrence of true crimes of State. It was faced with the questions of the determination of the condition of victims (identified or identifiable) at distinct states of the procedure, and the determination of the aggravated responsibility of the States concerned.Attention has been drawn also to the classification or categorization of victims, and the centrality of the notion of victim in such circumstances. The Court has further dwelt upon the victims' right of redress.

Keywords:   victims of massacres, identified or identifiable victims, aggravated State responsibility, classification of victims, notion of direct victim, victim's right of redress
