This paper analyzes the conventionality control (judicial review conducted in the light of Inter-American human rights standards) undertaken by the Council of State of Colombia (the supreme administrative tribunal) in cases of extrajudicial executions or “false positives.” In particular, it focuses on cases in which the tribunal adjudicates controversies involving tort claims against the State. The study examines how the parameters dictated by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights have been incorporated into Colombian case law.
