Bolivian Islands may be cause of action

Litoral mapVictor Hugo Chavez, a researcher and expert on maritime issues, is underlying the thesis that Bolivia has rights to six islands and islets in the Pacific Ocean, since they were not included in the Treaty of 1904.

Despite invasions suffered by us, especially the usurpation of Bolivian Litoral from Chile, Bolivia would have rights over islands and islets in the Pacific Ocean, located between parallels 23 and 24, since they were not part of the 1904 Treaty or other agreements with Chile, claims Chavez.

It mentions that on Thursday October 29, 2015, the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague opened the competition on the lawsuit filed by the Philippines against China, regarding the claim of a Philippine Islands in the South China Sea.

“This information was widely disseminated worldwide, however, was overlooked in Bolivia, because the policy of the Government of Morales was centered their attention maritime claim against Chile before the International Court of Justice in The Hague ( ICJ), the word may lead to confusion with the Permanent Court of Arbitration, also located in The Hague, “says the researcher.

Great to know, I just hope Bolivia goes ahead with this rightful claim!
