PCA to render its Award in the 'Abyei Arbitration case'

Today at 10 o’clock the Permanent Court of Arbitration will render its decision in the ‘Abyei Arbitration case‘. The case concerns a dispute between the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army. The issue to be decided are the boundaries of the oil-rich Abyei region in southern Sudan, which has threatened to disrupt the fragile 2005 peace agreement due to continued tensions.

The tribunal consists of the following members: Professor Pierre-Marie Dupuy (Presiding); H.E. Judge Awn Al-Khasawneh; Professor Gerhard Hafner; Professor W. Michael Reisman; Judge Stephen Schwebel.
