The Thirty-First Year of the World Court*

  • Manley O. Hudson

Extract

The International Court of Justice had a relatively busy year in 1952. The judges were in continuous session at The Hague from May 5 to August 27,1952; judgments were given in the Anibatielos Case between Greece and the United Kingdom (on a preliminary objection), in the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company Case between the United Kingdom and Iran (on a preliminary objection), and in the Case Concerning Bights of Nationals of the United States of America in Morocco between France and the United States. At the end of the year three cases were pending: the Amhatielos Case, the Minquiers and Ecrehos Case between the United Kingdom and France, and the Notteiohm Case between Liechtenstein and Guatemala.

1 The application mentions the appointment of an arbitrator “in the person of Mr. Raeburn.” An appeal from a judgment on an award made by W. N. Raeburn, K. C, as an arbitrator, is reported in Ambatielos v. Anton Jurgens Margarine Works, [1922] 2 K. B. 185, [1923] A. C. 175, and a case involving pilotage dues is reported as The Ambatielos, [1923] Probate 68; but neither of these cases would seem to be that described in the application.

13 The United Kingdom also asked the Court to order the Iranian Government to plead on the merits. Given the terms of Art. 53 of the Statute, it may be questioned whether such an order would be proper.

26 2 Miller, treaties of the United States 185. Miller dates the treaty in 1786, but it is sometimes dated in 1787; this difference is due to the peculiar circumstances under which the treaty was concluded.
