CHRISTIAN BREAKING NEWS: [UPDATE] Julia Sebutinde the Only ICJ Judge who VOTED AGAINST ALL Provisional Measures in South Africa’s Genocide Case Against Israel | Uganda Distances Itself from the Dissent saying It Does NOT Reflect Its Position [#JuliaSebutinde]
Kampala claims Justice Julia Sebutinde’s position rejecting the International Court of Justice (ICJ)’s conclusions on the battle with Hamas is her own and does not reflect the government.
Uganda has distanced itself from an opinion published by a Ugandan judge on the ICJ dissenting from the panel’s verdict in South Africa’s genocide case against Israel, stating that the remarks do not represent Uganda’s perspective.
Julia Sebutinde was the only judge on the 17-member ICJ panel who voted against all 6 measures imposed by the court in a verdict mandating Israel to take steps to avert genocide while fighting Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
She was also 1 of only 2 judges who disagreed with the court’s conclusion that some Israeli acts in the battle against Hamas may have violated the Genocide Convention.
The other was Aharon Barak, an Israeli justice.
