Default Re: Difference Between Writ of Habeas Corpus and Writ of Amparo

The phrase is most often associated with the writ of habeas corpus, which is a legal tool used to protect individuals from wrongful detention or imprisonment. The writ of habeas corpus, also referred to as "the great writ," comes from English common law and dates back to the Magna Carta. Habeas corpus is Latin for "you shall produce the body.
The writ is a judicial order to a prison official, jailer or custodian to bring the person before the court to determine if the person's imprisonment is lawful or if the person should be released.
The petition for a writ of amparo is a remedy available to any person whose right to life, liberty and security is violated or threatened with violation by an unlawful act or omission of a public official or employee, or of a private individual or entity. The writ shall cover extralegal killings and enforced disappearances or threats thereof.
