Chancellor Patiño and Attorney Garcia manage the decision of The Hague on Chevron case
Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino planned to intervene in the conversation about Chevron, in a side event of the general assembly of the United Nations Organization (UN), which takes place in New York this week.
Moreover, the Attorney General, Diego Garcia, invited the Court of Arbitration in The Hague to visit Ecuador and find environmental damage left by the work of Chevron. This request was made verbally and written on numerous occasions, but so far there is no response.
Garcia stressed the importance of the Court’s visit to Ecuador, following the decision made, in which apparently the Attorney General notes that responsibilities agreements signed by the Ecuadorian regime with Chevron refers to the claims that the State might arise in the course of their rights and not to the claims of third person acting in the course of their individual rights.
The prosecutor said the process is not over and will continue its process in a hearing that will be installed in January. “There is much still to do before a final decision,” explained Garcia by stating that there is no decision on any anticipatory measures.
