Guyana has asked UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon to send the controversy to the World Court before he demits office at the end of the year.
During a meeting with President David Granger in September the UN Secretary General said his assessment will most likely be given this month .
Guyana has been pressing the United Nations to recommend a judicial settlement to the decades old border controversy.
Despite agreeing to the 1899 Tribunal award to settle the border dispute, Venezuela continues to lay claim to Guyana’s territory alleging corruption on the part of the 1899 tribunal, which ruled in Guyana’s favour.
Venezuela stakes its claims on a death-bed confession of a member of the 1899 tribunal.
