Precautionary Measures issued by Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in favor of the Teribe (Bröran) and the Bribri indigenous peoples of Costa Rica.

Due to a series of violent attacks and threats against these two indigenous peoples in the last few years, the Commission decided that the acts and omissions of the State were not adequate and ordered Costa Rica, together with the affected peoples, to take the measures necessary to better protect the lives and physical integrity of the two indigenous peoples and their members.  The State has 15 days to respond to the Commission and the Commission will continue to monitor the matter.
