Singapore files written observation with ICJ on Malaysia's bid to revise Pedra Branca judgement
SINGAPORE has filed its written observation with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the admissibility of Malaysia's application to revise the ICJ's 2008 judgement in the case concerning the sovereignty over Pedra Branca, Middle Rocks and South Ledge.
"Singapore's written observations are a comprehensive rebuttal to Malaysia's application," said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement. The written observations were filed on May 24.
"Singapore is confident of our case and our legal team. The next step is for the parties to present their oral arguments after the ICJ has fixed the schedule for the oral proceedings," it added.
Malaysia had filed an application in February this year to overturn the ICJ's judgment of May 23 2008 awarding Pedra Branca to Singapore.
