Justice Minister Héctor Arce said today that relying on truth and justice, Bolivia’s legal team traveled to The Hague to prepare oral arguments on the country’s maritime demand.
With reason, right, truth and justice on our side, we went to The Hague to further consolidate Bolivia’s legal victory, Arce wrote on his Twitter account.
According to the head of Justice, during the meetings, the critical path of arguments and strategies for the trial will be defined.
Bolivia relies on its strong legal arguments, considered victorious, after a preliminary analysis of the reply presented by Chile, Arce emphasized.
Headed by Foreign Minister Fernando Huanacuni, the national team will also analyze the reply presented by Santiago before the International Court of Justice (CIJ) on September 15.
According to a press release from the Ministry of Justice, the agenda also includes working meetings with international lawyers and ICJ agent Eduardo Rodríguez Veltzé.
In 2013, Bolivia filed a lawsuit in The Hague for Chile to comply with offers made throughout history to negotiate a sovereign exit to the Pacific Ocean.
