THE HAGUE, 19 February 2004. The public hearings before the International Court of Justice (ICJ), principal judicial organ of the United Nations, to be held from 23 to 25 February 2004 in the case concerning the Legal Consequences of the Construction of a Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (request for advisory opinion), will be broadcast live and in full on the Court's official website (www.icj-cij.org).

Chagrined by the expected condemnation by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) of the separation wall Israel is building on occupied Palestinian land, Tel Aviv on Friday announced it will not appear at the oral hearings at The Hague next week. To Palestinian officials like Nabil Abu Rodayna, advisor to Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Yasser Arafat, this is an admission that the "Israelis cannot face the international community and international law and justice."

THE HAGUE, 18 February 2004. The International Court of Justice (ICJ), principal judicial organ of the United Nations, has been informed by Palestine, as well as South Africa, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Belize, Cuba, Indonesia, Jordan, Madagascar, Malaysia, Senegal, the Sudan and Turkey, and by the League of Arab States and the Organization of the Islamic Conference, of their desire to present oral statements in the case concerning the Legal Consequences of the Construction of a Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (request for advisory opinion).

The twin spectres of "politicizing" the UN and damaging the "fragility" of non-existent peace talks between General Sharon and the decrepit Palestinian Authority are again being invoked, this time to scuttle the upcoming deliberations in the International Court of Justice at the Hague on the legality of Israel's separation barrier in the occupied West Bank.

THE HAGUE, 3 February 2004. By an Order of 30 January 2004 the International Court of Justice (ICJ) decided, by thirteen votes to one, that certain matters brought to the attention of the Court by letters of 31 December 2003 and 15 January 2004 from the Government of Israel, were "not such as to preclude Judge Elaraby from participating in the present case".




THE HAGUE, 3 February 2004. The United Nations, 44 of its Member States, Palestine, the League of Arab States and the Organisation of the Islamic Conference have filed written statements within the time-limit fixed by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) by an Order of 19 December 2004 in the case concerning Legal Consequences of the Construction of a Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (request for advisory opinion).



The time-limit fixed was 30 January 2004 (see Press Release 2003/44).






Israel’s construction of the Apartheid Wall in the West Bank constitutes a grave violation of human rights and international law. The Apartheid Wall will result in the unilateral demarcation of a new border in the West Bank and the effective annexation of occupied land. Other violations of international law include collective punishment of the civilian population, the seizing of private property by an occupying power, the demolition of houses and property, and the violation of such basic human rights as the right to work and freedom of movement.
