Chapter Summary

The Memorandum addresses two issues of international law that permeate the discussion of the merits: namely the right of self determination, and its obligations and duties, and the applicability of international instruments in the Inter-American system. Then it will provide a brief review of the State's preliminary objection that all domestic remedies have not been exhausted as it relates to the Numa's request for certification as a distinct &t;indigenous people&t; as prescribed by Esmeralda law. Finally, the Memorandum will focus on the merits of the case. Article 1(1) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights states: &t;All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.
