Honduras seeks to block citizen's US execution

The Associated Press
Wednesday, August 6, 2008

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras: The Honduran government says it is lobbying
U.S. authorities to stop Thursday's scheduled execution of one of its
citizens for a 2001 slaying in Texas.

Honduran consular assistance director Ramon Valladares says Heliberto
Chi was not given access to consular help as mandated by the 1963
Vienna Convention treaty.

However, Chi is not among some 50 U.S. death row inmates who the
International Court of Justice has said should be given new hearings.

Valladares told HRN radio Wednesday that Chi's legal team could soon
file appeals on other grounds.

On Tuesday, Mexican-born Jose Medellin was executed in Texas for the
1993 rape and murder of two girls.
