Belize has submitted its Rejoinder to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) reference the Territorial, Insular and Maritime Claim by Guatemala/Belize.  It has been four years since the matter has been before the ICJ when both Belize and Guatemala agreed to take the differendum to The Hague. The Rejoinder delivered by Belize today, marks the end of the stage that calls for written submissions from both countries.  The Rejoinder, which is, essentially, a second response from Belize, was delivered by Belize’s Agents, Ambassadors Assad Shoman and Alexis Rosado, who were accompanied by Mariana Verde, Chief Operations Officer of the Office of the Agent, and Catherine Drummond, Legal Counsel.  According to a press release from the Government, Belizeans can be assured that a very strong case has been put forward in defence of Belize’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.  The next step now is to have the ICJ set a date where oral presentations will be heard.
