USA: Government must ensure meaningful judicial review of Mexican death row cases
On 25 March 2008, in a case involving the USA’s obligation to comply with judgments of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the US Supreme Court ruled in favour of the State of Texas and against a Mexican national on death row there. The Supreme Court has effectively passed the buck to the other branches of government to act to ensure that the USA meets its international obligations. Amnesty International urges them to do so.
