EU Declaration on Medellín Execution

On Monday, 11 August, the Council of the European Union (EU) issued a declaration on the execution of Mexican national José Medellín in Texas last week.

In the declaration the EU restates its opposition to the death penalty, which it calls an affront to human dignity, and appeals to the United States to introduce a moratorium on executions referring to UN General Assembly resolution 62/149 of 18 December 2007. The EU also urges the United States to take the legislative measures required to give effect to the rulings of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and calls on Texas to halt the executions of the four remaining Mexican nationals on death row named in the ICJ provisional measures order of 16 July.

A very clean and clear document.

Exactly what is needed to remind the United States of their need to follow the conventions that have been signed.

It will be interesting to see whether the US will ensure that ICJ-decisions can be followed up upon.

This will require both legislative measures at both the state and the national level.

Nothing really surprising in this document.
