ICJ: Nicaragua v. Colombia judgment on preliminary objections delivered

The International Court of Justice delivered its Judgment on the preliminary objections raised by Colombia in the case concerning Question of the Delimitation of the Continental Shelf between Nicaragua and Colombia beyond 200 nautical miles from the Nicaraguan Coast (Nicaragua v. Colombia). The Court found that it has jurisdiction, on the basis of Article XXXI of the Pact of Bogotá, to entertain the First Request put forward by Nicaragua in its Application, in which it requests the Court to determine “the precise course of the maritime boundary between Nicaragua and Colombia in the areas of the continental shelf which appertain to each of them beyond the boundaries determined by the Court in its Judgment of 19 November 2012”, and that that Request is admissible. The award of the court can be found here.
