09 Mar U.S. Withdraws From Vienna Convention Optional Protocol?
There are rumors and/or reports that the U.S. will withdraw today from the Optional Protocol to the Vienna Convention for Consular Relations. If true, this would probably bring to an end the litigation before the International Court of Justice on foreign nationals’ rights who are facing death sentences in the United States. But it would raise lots of legal questions.
I will post more as soon as I get confirmation, although I’ve heard some intimations from a variety of sources that this might happen.
