Iran Drags US to International Court of Justice for Unlawful Sanctions



The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has agreed to hear Iran’s case against the sanctions imposed by the US on Tehran. The hearing against the renewed US sanctions aiming to bring Iran’s oil imports and economy on its knees will begin soon at the International Court of Justice, Hague.

The US in May withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (Iran Nuclear Deal 2015) and announced that it would reimpose old sanctions on Iran. Can the ICJ deliver justice to Tehran amid the economic war waged by the US?

US vs Iran @ International Court of Justice

As reported by media in the Netherlands (Hague) where the ICJ is based, the top court will begin to hear Iran’s plea on Monday. Iran had filed a suit against the US sanctions in the ICJ last month to challenge Donald Trump’s decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran.

These sanctions were lifted when the landmark Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action was signed between Iran and P5+1 nations. The US fetched criticism from other nations for leaving the Iran Nuclear Deal unilaterally after Donald Trump’s rise to power.

Tehran’s arguing point is that the economic sanctions which the US now aims to reimpose on Iran are clearly in violation of the Treaty of Amity and Economic Relations signed by Iran and the US in 1955.

Fearing secondary sanctions, major European firms have shut down their businesses in Iran and the importers of Iranian oil too have started looking for alternatives to avoid economic sanctions from Washington. The US has asked all the importers of Iranian oil to completely annul the oil trade with Tehran by November 4.

China and Russia though have refused to respect US sanctions on Iran and have reiterated their commitment to saving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. The global powers stand at loggerheads over the issue of Iran and now with the ICJ coming in, Iran can hope of some respite from the top international court based in Hague.
