Pedra Branca: Malaysia’s allegations baseless

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 19, 2007

Deputy Prime Minister and Law Minister S Jayakumar has called Malaysia’s allegations in the two sides’ dispute over Pedra Branca ‘baseless’ and ‘distracting’. He was speaking on Monday at the International Court of Justice at The Hague in the Netherlands on the first of a two-day round of rebuttals for the Singapore side, after both countries had presented their main arguments to the Court in the past fortnight.

‘During Singapore’s first round oral pleadings, we have focused our presentations purely on legal and factual issues in dispute between the parties,’ said Prof Jayakumar. (link)
