ICJ: Decision in Mexico's Request for an Interpretation of Avena and Provisional Measures
By a vote of 7-5, the International Court of Justice dismissed the submission of the United States to dismiss Mexico's application for an interpretation of the Avena judgment. The ICJ also ordered the following provisional measures:
The United States of America shall take all measures necessary to ensure that Messrs. José Ernesto Medellín Rojas, César Roberto Fierro Reyna, Rubén Ramírez Cárdenas, Humberto Leal García, and Roberto Moreno Ramos are not executed pending judgment on the Request for interpretation submitted by the United Mexican States, unless and until these five Mexican nationals receive review and reconsideration consistent with paragraphs 138 to 141 of the Court’s Judgment delivered on 31 March 2004 in the case concerning Avena and Other Mexican Nationals (Mexico v. United States of America).
