ICJ Delivers Order on Construction of a Road in Costa Rica along the San Juan River
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) delivers its order on the request for the indication of provisional measures filed by Nicaragua on 11 October 2013 in the case concerning Construction of a Road in Costa Rica along the San Juan River (Nicaragua v. Costa Rica). Nicaragua sought to protect certain rights which, in its view, are affected by the road construction works being carried out by Costa Rica near the border area between the two countries along the San Juan River. In its Order made today, the Court found unanimously, “that the circumstances, as they now present themselves to [it], are not such as to require the exercise of its power to indicate provisional measures”.
