International Court of Justice

Chagos island

The UK now says that the US military base ‘helps to protect people here in Britain and around the world from terrorist threats, organised crime and piracy’

Chagos Verdict

The United Kingdom had coaxed Mauritius to sell the Chagos Islands to them for a meager compensation, and later leased it to the US to set up a military base by deporting hundreds of native Chagossians

President Evo Morales said he would write to the UN after the International Court of Justice ruled that Chile had no obligation to negotiate access to the Pacific Ocean for Bolivia

The court also said that the US sanctions “have the potential to endanger civil aviation safety,” and that the limiting of sale of goods like food and medicine could have a negative impact on the lives of Iranians
