The Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) begins oral pleadings in dispute over oil-rich Abyei region in Central Sudan. The region straddles the border between Northern (Khartoum) Sudan and Southern (Darfur) Sudan and holds over 70% of the nation's oil reserves.
The tribunal is mandated to deliver - within 90 days - a final and binding judgment on Khartoum’s claim that the ABC exceeded its own mandate in its ruling on the boundaries of Abyei, which it delivered in July 2005.
