DA’91, on behalf of many concerned citizens, has written to the International Court of Justice in The Hague and protested against the map used by the Republic of Guyana during the recent hearings at the Court of Justice. The map shows the area popularly known as ‘Tigri’ as Guyanese territory.

DA’91 sent the letter via the Registrar of the ICJ, His Excellency Phillipe Gautier, to the President of the ICJ, Her Excellency, Judge Joan Donoghue. On December 1, 2023, the ICJ issued an interim ruling in the case brought by Guyana against Venezuela. Guyana filed a case against Venezuela in 2018 (Arbitral Award of October 3rd, 1899), but approached the Court for an urgent interim ruling. This is due to recent developments in the border area with Venezuela, where fears of an invasion were increasing.
