The Ambassador of Equatorial Guinea to the Kingdom of Belgium and the Netherlands, Carmelo Nvono-Ncá, headed last week an important meeting with the team of international lawyers who have been defending Equatorial Guinea in the case against France for more than two years in the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Although the Court issued last year a decision in favor of Equatorial Guinea regarding the “preliminary objections”, the trial is not yet concluded and some sessions are still ahead.
To that end, the Ambassador, who is also the mandated agent of the case before the ICJ, has assembled the entire legal team in the Belgian capital in order to deal with the counter response to France, which will be deposited with the Court next month of May. The next sessions before the Court of The Hague, and possibly the final ones, are expected to take place at the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020.
