ICJ says its work continued unabated despite COVID crisis

The International Court of Justice in Hague continued its work unperturbed by the COVID crisis. Judge Abdel-Qawi A. Yousuf, President of the International Court of Justice (ICJ)  told journalists at a virtual press conference that the court was able to “maintain its judicial output at the same level as in previous years, despite the difficult conditions” imposed by the coronavirus pandemic. 

“The Coronavirus has disrupted the old tradition of in-person meetings and in-person hearings”, acknowledged Mr. Yousuf, however, he added, the court was still able to “respond quickly to continue performing its functions under the UN Charter” by applying technologies for remote meetings and hearings.
