Mogadishu (SD) – Deputy Prime Minister of the Federal Government of Somalia Mahdi Mohamed Guled (Khadar) citing a statement from the International Criminal Court (ICJ) this afternoon, confirmed the court again delayed the maritime case between Somalia and Kenya.

The deputy prime minister said that the ICJ again rescheduled to hear the case on March 15, 2021, and that the decision was based on the challenges presented by the prevalence of COVID-19.

Mr. Mahdi Mohamed Guled also noted that the hearing will be a debate but there will be no new documents to be submitted to the ICJ as determined by the court.
