In 1982 professor Carlos Mauricio was abducted by the Salvadoran National Police, detained for two weeks and tortured. In 2002, Carlos was a plaintiff in an historic, successful lawsuit that held two retired Salvadoran generals liable for the crimes of troops under thier command.

In March of this year, Carlos joined Father Roy Bourgeois and Lisa Sullivan-Rodriguez of School of the Americas Watch in investigating the new International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA), a police training school sponsored by the U.S. in San Salvador.
