ICJ makes public details of Malaysia’s bid to revise 2008 Pedra Branca judgement (Straits Times, 10 February 2017)

The International Court of Justice on Feb 10 released Malaysia’s application to revise the court’s 2008 judgment that awarded sovereignty of Pedra Branca to Singapore. In the 42-page application, Malaysia cited three “new facts” to argue that “Singapore’s officials at the highest levels did not consider that Singapore had acquired sovereignty over Pedra Branca from Johor” in the years following 1953. Malaysia filed the application on Feb 2, asking the court to revise its judgement. Singapore has formed a legal team, including senior lawyers well-acquainted with the issue, to study the application.
