This article explores different cases taken before the Supreme Court of Mexico concerning issues of international criminal law. The first part addresses the proposition of universal jurisdiction in the Cavallo case. The second part concerns the ex post facto application of the Inter-American Convention on Forced Disappearance of Persons and the issue of the statute of limitations regarding international crimes in the Forced Disappearance case and the Echeverría Appeal. The final part discusses the Atenco case, in which the doctrine of command responsibility was considered but ultimately not used in the final decision. The conclusion is that the methods of interpretation of the Supreme Court are still limited by the Constitution, which sometimes hinders developments consistent with international standards.
