ICJ Kosovo Judgment Due in November
The long-awaited ICJ judgment on Kosovo is due out this November, according to this report. That would be pretty fast work, given the hearings were only held last December and probably involved the participation of more countries (35) filing memorials than any case in ICJ history. Still, the judgment was actually expected even earlier. Moreover, the report from Serbia suggests that the forthcoming arrest of long-wanted suspect Ratko Mladic may have an outcome on the ICJ’s decision? I have no idea what that is supposed to mean, but it suggests there may be some political machinations affecting the pending judgment. Any readers with more knowledge of what’s going on in Serbia on this should feel free to share.
