Int’l Court of Justice to rule on Somalia-Kenya maritime case next month


The Int’l Court of Justice is expected to deliver its verdict on the maritime case between Somalia and Kenya next month, Somalia’s deputy PM Mahdi Gulied confirmed.

Guled who was the principal agent for Somalia during the later times of the case said Monday the UN Court will be ruling on the matter on October 12, 2021.

The Court has however not made a public statement on the matter. The ruling will bring to an end the case which has been running since 2014 when Somalia first filed the case at the Hague based court.

The court concluded hearings last October with Somalia alone participating in the oral hearings after Kenya pulled out citing bias.
