ICJ to stream Preah Vihear hearings live

With the International Court of Justice’s hearing on the territorial dispute over the Preah Vihear temple a little more than two weeks away, followers of the case can keep abreast of the proceedings without waiting for the daily news coverage.

The live feed, courtesy of the ICJ’s website, www.icj-cij.org, will show the full four days of hearings, which can also be seen at webtv.un.org.

At The Hague-based court, Cambodia representatives kick off oral arguments on Monday, April 15, at 10am Central European Time, which is 3pm in Phnom Penh.

Thailand takes centre stage two days later, on April 17, at the same time. Each morning session lasts three hours. Representatives of both countries also have an afternoon session on their respective days at 3pm (8pm in Cambodia). The second and final round of arguments starts on April 18 for Cambodia, and April 19 for Thailand. The two-hour session begins each day at 8pm Cambodia time.

At issue is a 4.6-square-kilometre stretch of land encircling the temple that Cambodia and Thailand both claim. The ICJ awarded the temple to Cambodia in 1962, but the hearing deals specifically with the surrounding land.
