Costa Rica v. Nicaragua - ICJ Hearing on Request for Provisional Measures
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will hold public hearings this week regarding Costa Rica's request for provisional measures against Nicaragua from Tuesday, January 11 to Thursday, January 13, 2011 at the Hague. Costa Rica initiated this case in November 2010, complaining that Nicaragua's army had crossed illegally into Costa Rican territory, set up camps there and engaged in unauthorized dredging activities in Costa Rican waters, causing damage to the forest and the San Juan and Colorado Rivers. Costa Rica has requested a provisional order that Nicaraguan troops immediately withdraw from Costa Rican territory and and cease activity there.
