Belize to meet deadline for ICJ counter-memorial

Posted: Friday, January 21, 2022. 8:58 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: It has fallen off the national radar, partly by design and partly because other major issues have taken its place.

But the trial of the unfounded Guatemalan claim on Belize before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, Netherlands in a few years’ time gathers apace.

“We are preparing the documents and we will file them on time,” Foreign Affairs Minister Eamon Courtenay said Thursday by way of a brief update on the counter-memorial to Guatemala’s memorial issued in December of 2020. It is due by June 8 of this year.

The Minister reminded that comments on the issue are limited both by Belize’s attorneys and by ICJ statute.

Once Belize has submitted its counter-memorial, Guatemala has a chance to respond, followed by Belize’s response and then the settlement of the claim in court by approximately 2025.
