Last month, Malaysia and Singapore went to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) over a case of sovereignty. Pulau Batu Puteh (or Pedra Branca to Singapore), Royal Rocks and South Ledge are the three features in dispute.
After a long disagreement, the two neighboring states decided to bring the case to the ICJ in the Hague, the Netherlands. The public hearing took place last month, where each party delivered their arguments. The case has not yet been decided but the judgment is expected to be final in six months.
