Jamaican attorney general A.J. Nicholson says Jamaican consular officials in Washington are providing alleged DC sniper Lee Boyd Malvo with "'all possible assistance' that is consistent with 'established international norms'", reports today's Observer. Under Virginia law, remember, Malvo faces a possible capital sentence, even though he is still a minor.

"'Notwithstanding some reservations on our side regarding process, we also have to be sensitive to the laws and legal processes of sovereign countries, in this case, the United States of America,' Nicholson wrote."
