Kashmir issue urged to take to international court

Retired Justice Ali Nawaz Chowhan, according to a statement issued by the Srinagar-based Legal Forum for Oppressed Voices of Kashmir (FLOVK) on Saturday, said Pakistan being an important party to the long-standing dispute should approach the UN court.

Hawzah News Agency - (Kashmir - Pakistan) - A former chief justice of Gambia suggested Pakistan approach the International Court of Justice (ICJ) regarding the continuing rights violations in Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir.

Retired Justice Ali Nawaz Chowhan, according to a statement issued by the Srinagar-based Legal Forum for Oppressed Voices of Kashmir (FLOVK) on Saturday, said Pakistan being an important party to the long-standing dispute should approach the UN court.

Chowhan made the remarks during a three-day moot competition, The Case Pertaining to Kashmir Dispute in Islamabad.

FLOVK, which organized the event, is an international legal organization which defends "the political, social and human rights of Kashmiris."

"If Gambia can approach the ICJ under the section of violation of human rights, why not Pakistan," he was quoted as saying.
