On 16 October 2023 the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, granted a request by The Gambia for 7 months to respond to Myanmar’s brief which was filed in the ICJ. The Gambia stated that Myanmar should be given the same amount of time to reply to The Gambia’s response.
The ICJ published its decision stating that the pleadings will follow this schedule:
16 May 2024 for the Reply of the Republic of The Gambia;
16 December 2024 for the Rejoinder of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
Rohingya Khobor will continue to monitor developments in this case.
