Chagos Marine Protected Area - Mauritius takes UK to UN Law of Sea Tribunal

At a press conference in Mauritius yesterday, the Prime Minister 
Ramgoolam announced that Mauritius has informed the UK Foreign 
Secretary, William Hague, that it has begun proceedings before the 
International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. Mauritius is seeking a 
legally binding declaration on the Chagos Marine Protected Area, which 
it believes is incompatible with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea
