Ghana wins case against Côte d'Ivoire at International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS)...
Ghana has won the maritime dispute case against Cote d'Ivoire.
The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) in its ruling on Saturday said Ghana has no special responsibility towards Côte d'Ivoire and so the issue of reparation doesn't arise.
Cote d'Ivoire wanted the Special ITLOS Chamber to invite the parties to carry out negotiations in order to reach an agreement on the terms of reparation due Côte d'Ivoire.
But the Special Chamber has rejected that call reports Graphic Online's Mabel Aku Baneseh from Hamburg.
It was a unanimous decision.
This means Ghana is not financially obligated to Côte d'Ivoire.
