ICJ DECISIONS

Imagine this happening

However, another learned colleague has further legal opinion on this:

Ciise Dhoolawaa: “My learned friend has failed to mention that 53 (2), which says “The Court must, before doing so, satisfy itself, not only that [it] has jurisdiction, in accordance with Article 36 and 37, but also that the claim is well founded in fact and law.”

Now, the Court has already stated that it had jurisdiction over the case on Febraury 2, 2017.

The second element of the article 53 (2) is that Somalia’s claim under article 53(2) must be “well founded in FACT and LAW.” That is if Somalia is going after Article 53 (2)”
