In September 2005, Costa Rica filed an application instituting proceedings with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Nicaragua. Costa Rica alleges that Nicaragua has acted to prevent the free and full exercise of Costa Rica's navigational rights with respect to the San Juan River. Briefing has been completed and that Court has scheduled public hearings to be held beginning Monday, March 2, 2009. The public hearings will be held in the Great Hall of Justice of the Peace Palace in The Hague, the Netherlands. More information on the case can be found by clicking here.
