Border Humour: Presidents of Nicaragua and Costa Rica Battle It Out!

CRHOY-caricatura-05-02-2013

In this caricature by CRHOY, we have Nicaraguan president, Daniel Ortega (left) telling Costa Rican president, Laura Chinchilla, “According to Google, the waters of the San Juan river feed the the Colorado river, so it’s like (the Colorado) is ours”.

Chinchilla responds, “we have the best defense against an invasion…La Trocha!!… for being impassable”.

This past week, Nicaragua is asking the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague to give Nicaragua navigation rights of the Colorado river that belongs to Costa Rica. The two countries are locked into a border battle dispute following the alleged invasion of Nicaragua of the Isla Calero (in October 2010) along the San Juan river that belongs to Nicaragua.

That case is before the ICJ.
