Costa Rica to sue Nicaragua over sea rights

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Costa Rica said it will take Nicaragua again to the International Court of Justice.

San José is accusing Nicaragua of offering oil exploration blocks on Costa Rican waters.

"We are working on a suit against Nicaragua for usurping and offering Costa Rican territorial seas, based on demarcation it did arbitrarily and unilaterally, to chart what it calls its oil exploration blocks," said Foreign Minister Enrique Castillo.
