“…Now, it’s important to make a clarification. The author of these lines does not stand for the isolation or failure to recognize an undeniable reality (it would be absurd): the reality of the international treaties and the contribution of some international courts, such as the European Court of Human Rights, the International Criminal Court or the International Court of Justice.

The latter, at the SCJN’s sole discretion, was adopted during July 2011 and published on October 4 of the same year, when the SCJN resolved to subject itself unconditionally to the decrees of the I/A Court H.R.
