    World court says not comptent to rule in India-Pakistan dispute

    LA HAYE, June 21 (AFP) -
    The Internatinal Court of Justice said Wednesday it was not competent to rule on a dispute between India and Pakistan over the downing of a Pakistani navy plane in August 1999.

    During four days of public hearings in April, Pakistan had argued that the court was competent to rule while India argued against this.

    Pakistan had lodged a compensation claim on September 21, arguing that its plane was on a routine training mission when it was shot down on August 10 in Pakistani airspace, killing all 16 personnel on board.

    "India is responsible for the deliberate shooting of an unarmed aircraft inside Pakistan's territory, causing the death of sixteen young men," said Aziz Munshi, Pakistan's attorney-general.

    Pakistan argued that the wreckage of the plane was about two kilometers (over a mile) inside Pakistan territory, proof that when the aircraft was shot it was well within its own airspace.

    India argued that the plane was in Indian airspace.

    The ICJ is the United Nation's supreme judicial body, but it has no powers of execution, relying on the willingness of states involved in a dispute to respect the orders or recommendations handed down by its judges.

    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

              It's interesting to note that both lawyers representing India and Pakistan were Gujaratis from Gujarat. Soli Sorabjee a Parsi lawyer and Aziz Munshi who was born and brought up in remote village of Gujarat and Ahmedabad.

                  Aziz Munshi has claimed that this decision is a step forward and it means that all the disputes should be solved by peaceful means. he says that judgement is only technical and india has not won the case. I like his sense of humor and optimism.

                      Do you what crap you are talking about Pukka???
                      The barrister who did the work for us is highly recommended in England.
                      He is very competent and would lay down his life for the country - take my word for it.
                      Hell the council of lords has used him!!!
                      The FO is a highly competent force in Pak politics.
                      Hell it is more competent than the army, if the ****ing politicans would leave them alone.
                      I happen to know some of the them personally.
                      So don't start crap about the FO which has individuals who Saudi Arabia has offered 8000 dollars a month to set up their FO academy.
                      They all stayed with the country instead of serving SA for money.
                      However our Politicans and other officers from offices would have left without a thought.
                      The PAK FO academy is the one of the best in the Third world.
                      We have created the first 5 batches of Kirgistani, Uzbek, Tajik and Kzygistani officier for their govt.
                      And more are still coming.
                      They have chosen to come to pakistan instead of Russia and India.
                      That shows some thing for our competence.
                      Countries like Kenya, Tanzania and a number of others have sent their officiers to be taught by us for decades.
                      Munir Akram the AMB here in geneva to the UN is very competent.
                      There are a whole lot that are very good hell better than the EU ones.
                      Sheyar Khan is another example.
                      Also if you are a Pukka Desi what is this crap against the FO???
                      Ok take my word that after the 1975 batch alot of idiots have come in, but with the CE in power they all will be kicked out.
                      However during the Zia period we had a lot of competent people coming back into the line up.
                      But the so called democracy have ruined the FO.
                      By promoting idiots who are nephews or cousins and other **** like that.
                      You can't fix stupid. So might as well troll them!

                        What is the point in having a World Court if it can't mediate in a dispute between two nations?

                        What is the point of International Law if it can't be enforced?
