  • Description

    The U.N. Security Council voted on Wednesday night (July 29) ??? ask the long inactive World Court to re-examine the question of South-West Africa.

    In proposing the news initiative on Namibia (as the former German colony is called at the U.N.) Finland's ambassador Max Jakobson spoke of the need to activate the International Court of Justice whose decline of authority was damaging to the entire U.N. system and the structure of International law. Britain, the Soviet Union and Poland abstained when the resolution was adopted by 13 votes to none.

    The Council also adopted an earlier resolution calling on all States that maintain diplomatic and consular relations with South Africa to issue a formal declaration to the South African Government stating that they do not recognise Pretoria's authority in Namibia and consider South Africa's continued presence there "illegal."
