Kenya withdraws from maritime-border case with Somalia


  March 14th 2021 at 13:30:11 GMT +0300

Kenya has pulled out of the maritime border case with Somalia just a few hours to the scheduled hearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands.

On March 9, the ICJ, a principal judicial organ of the United Nations, stated it would hold public hearings in the case concerning Maritime Delimitation in the Indian Ocean from tomorrow to March 24.

Kenya is expected to file a notice of non-participation in the hearings, sources say.

The Kenyan legal team may tomorrow seek 30 minutes to explain grounds upon which the country may seek not to participate in the hearings.
