Nicaragua rejects 'criminal state' label by Costa Rica

Friday, October 18, 2013


Thursday's closing arguments at the International Court of Justice ended with tensions after Costa Rica accused Nicaragua of being a criminal nation and Nicaragua mocked Costa Rica for having a loser government.

“In my 30 years of experience working before the Court, my country has never been referred to in such undiplomatic terms as a repeat offender or a criminal state,” Nicaraguan Ambassador Carlos Argüello told the Court during his closing remarks.

“In recent years, the Government of Nicaragua has been classified among the 25% best governments and is fourth among 19 governments polled in Latin America," Argüello said.
