Thailand v. Cambodia - fight on!
The dispute between Thailand and Cambodia over the Preah Vihear temple has been mentioned on this blog before, but now it's taken an even more explicitly legal turn. Cambodia petitioned the International Court of Justice to clarify its 1958 decision regarding the temple. That's right - the ICJ ruled on this issue in 1958, and the countries are still fighting over it. It will be interesting to see what happens this time around - and more importantly, if a new decision actually resolves the dispute.
