Request for Interpretation of the Judgment of 20 November 1950 in the Asylum Case (Colombia v. Peru)
OVERVIEW OF THE CASE
On the very day on which the Court delivered the Judgment on the Asylum case, Colombia filed a Request for interpretation, seeking a reply to the question of whether the Judgment implied an obligation to surrender the refugee to the Peruvian authorities. In a Judgment delivered on 27 November 1950, the Court declared the request inadmissible.
