UN Official Says Execution of Mexican Killer Leal Broke International Law

This group of thugs, Islamists and rogue regimes really hates it when they can’t force America to bow to their rules and opinion.

Navi Pillay

The top United Nations human rights official said the United States broke international law when they executed killer Humberto Leal yesterday.

The AP reported:

The U.N.’s top human rights official says the U.S. breached international law when it executed a Mexican citizen.

U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said Friday the Texas execution of Humberto Leal “raises particular legal concerns,” including whether he had access to consular services and a fair trial. Pillay also cited a 2004 International Court of Justice ruling saying the U.S. must review and reconsider the cases of 51 Mexican nationals sentenced to death, including Leal’s — But, she said, that never happened.

Leal was executed Thursday despite a White House-backed appeal that claimed the case could affect foreigners arrested in the U.S. and Americans in legal trouble abroad.
