Barreto Leiva v. Venezuela. Series C No. 206

Key paragraph(s) can be found below the document.


62.

To prevent the accused from being advised by a counsel means to strictly limit the right to defense, which leads to a procedural unbalance and leaves the individual unprotected before the punishing authority.
