The first chamber of the Supreme Court of Mexico will discuss on January 23 a new project concerning the Cassez’ Case, in  which is proposed grant to the french citizen a habeas corpus with effects, according sources of the judicial power.

The French citizen met a condemnation of 60 years for kidnapping, result of a process in which were violated her rights, specially the set of fundamental rights which comprise thedue process of law, according the project of one of the supreme court’s judges, Arturo Zaldivar, issued in march, 21, 2012.

That project was rejected, even though 4 of the 5 judges agreed with the existence of violations of her fundamental rights. 3 of 5 were pronounced in favor of grant to her the habeas corpus but only two of them agreed in grant her the freedom.

The author of this new project, Olga Sanchez, on that occasion said: ‘’just the violation of her right to consular assistance was enough to order her freedom’’.
