Mexico Brings Grievances Against Ecuador to ICJ Amid Mounting Diplomatic Row

HeadlineApr 12, 2024

Mexico has filed a complaint with the International Court of Justice and requested the U.N. expel Ecuador, as tensions between the two nations rise. Last week, Ecuadorian police and military raided the Mexican Embassy in Quito to arrest former leftist Ecuadorian Vice President Jorge Glas. Glas had been taking refuge at the embassy since December to avoid arrest on corruption charges, which he and allies say are politically motivated. This is Mexico’s Foreign Secretary Alicia Bárcena.

Alicia Bárcena: “Mexico is accusing Ecuador of violating the diplomatic immunity of its embassy, and this is extremely serious, regardless of the cause. The fact that they have raided the embassy in a violent manner with police and military forces is a violation, unjustified anywhere.”
