Posted on January 20, 2009 by HescominsoonWorld Court says US defied order in death row case – Yahoo! News The International Court of Justice ruled Monday that the United States defied its order last year when authorities in Texas executed a Mexican convicted of rape and murder. The U.N.’s highest court said the U.S. remains obliged to review the cases of about 50 other Mexicans on death row because they were denied access to their consulate after they were arrested. But it rejected Mexico’s request that Washington guarantee that each case will be reviewed and reconsidered. Considering we are a soverign nation and the UN has not power over us it’s court ruling are just as meaningless.
