Garrett Barnes Case brief Extra Credit Pulp Mills on the River Uruguay (Argentina v. Uruguay) 46 I.L.M. 314 (March 2007) International Court of Justice Background and Facts- On May 4, 2006, Argentina brought up a complaint to the ICJ against Uruguay because Uruguay breached obligations to provide notice and consult with the Administrative Commission before authorizing construction of paper mills on the banks of the river. The reporting of the obligations and duties are embodied in the Statute of the River Uruguay, a 1975 treaty between the two parties that has goals of utilizing, conserving, and preventing pollution of the River. Argentina is saying that the paper mills would release toxic air and liquid, resulting in damage to the ecosystem of the river and risk to the health of over 300,000 Argentina citizens. They also claimed that it would cause material injury to the local community, particularly fisherman and tourism, because the mills were only 25 kilometers (approx 15 miles) away from a very big tourist resort.
