WHY WE HAVE TO GO TO COURT

By Alejandro Vernon,

Belize has to go to the International Court of Justice at the Peace Palace at the Hague because like in every matter from the domestic to the national to the International, where a conflict arises there is a Court that can deal with it to the satisfaction of the disputing parties. A Court is the ultimate institution that is empowered to decide on a case, a dispute or an international controversy.

When Belize took Independence from Britain in 1981, it inherited the famous Anglo-Guatemalan Controversy over the territory of British Honduras (Belize). The PUP Government restored the name BELIZE to the territory in 1973, and the unsolved controversy became the BELIZE/GUATEMALA DISPUTE.

We have to go to the Court that solves territorial disputes. The International Court of Justice is the judicial arm of the United Nations, and has dealt with similar controversies throughout the world. We turn to this Court now, as recommended by the Organization of American States (OAS) because the matter could not be solved ‘out of Court,’ in other words, by negotiations. Negotiations failed with Mediator Bethuel Webster’s 17 Proposals of 1968, and failed with the Heads of Agreement of 1981, and also failed with the Reichler/Ramphal Proposals of 2002.
