ITLOS judgement; what it means for Ghana

A lecture to educate the Ghanaian public and the media on what the implications of Saturday's judgement by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) is for Ghana's economy and the country as a whole has been held by media group, TV3.

Saturday's sitting at the ITLOS court in Germany saw the President, Justice Boualem Bouguetai rule in Ghana's favor.

The Chamber in a unanimous decision on Saturday September 23, 2017, ruled that there has not been any violation on the part of Ghana on Côte d’Ivoire’s maritime boundary.

The Chamber rejected Côte d’Ivoire’s argument that Ghana’s coastal lines were unstable.

It also noted that Ghana has not violated Côte d’Ivoire’s sovereign rights with its oil exploration in the disputed basin.

Various experts and stakeholders addressed questions from the media as well as educated the public on what exactly the ruling means for the country.
