The ICJ has announced that the infamous Pro-Israeli Ugandan Judge Julia Sebutinde, a judge who voted against all provisional measures brought forth by South Africa against Israel, was elected as the Vice-President of the World Court on Feb. 6, 2024.
Sebutinde, who was disowned by her own country, Uganda, for her stand against Palestine in South Africa’s case of genocide, will be serving a three-year term as VP.
The pro-Israeli judge has been a member of the ICJ since February 2012 and reportedly voted against all provisional measures that the ICJ ordered the Israeli regime to undertake in a case brought by South Africa concerning the war in the Gaza Strip.”
“Justice Sebutinde ruling at the ICJ (the International Court of Justice) does not represent the Government of Uganda’s position on the situation in Palestine,” Uganda’s Permanent Representative to the U.N., Adonia Ayebare, wrote on X. “Uganda’s support for the plight of the Palestinian people has been expressed through our voting pattern at the United Nations.”
