The Ugandan justice even voted against the charges on which Israel’s own judge Aharon Barak voted yes.

Uganda’s representative to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Julia Sebutinde, has become a heroine among Israel fans, despite her country’s distance from her.

She was one of 17 judges who deliberated on interim measures in the case of the Application of the Genocide Convention in the Gaza Strip (South Africa vs Israel) on Friday.

She voted against all proposed interim measures, making her the only permanent judge to do so, as opposed to Ad hoc Judge Aharon Barak, who opposed most but backed two.

In her dissenting view, she claimed that the crux of the debate was primarily political rather than legal, and that Israel had provided no convincing evidence of genocidal intent.

Julia Sebutinde, 69, is a famous Ugandan judge who has been serving on the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for her second term since March 2012.

She is the first African woman to occupy the role.

She has a strong legal background, having graduated from Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda, received a certification from the Law Development Center in Kampala, and a Master of Laws from the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland.

She then worked in various legal positions in Uganda, the UK, and Namibia.

Sebutinde’s impressive career includes serving as a judge in the Special Court for Sierra Leone, presided over high-profile corruption investigations in Uganda, and being elected to the ICJ, demonstrating her important contributions to international justice.
