International Court of Justice

In 2013, the International Court of Justice (icj) delivered two judgments, made 11 orders and had 14 contentious cases pending before it. In an October address to the General Assembly, the icj President, Judge Peter Tomka, noted that the Court had made every effort to meet the expectations of the parties appearing before it in a timely manner. He stressed that as the Court had been able to clear its backlog of cases, States could be confident that, as soon as they completed their written exchanges, the Court would move to the hearings stage without delay and do its utmost for the advancement of international justice and the peaceful settlement of disputes between States.
