Kosovo as a test case

The International Court of Justice in The Hague has been deliberating since Tuesday on the legality of Kosovo's declaration of independence. Serbia has refused to recognise the unilateral declaration, and last year submitted to the court a demand for a legal opinion on the matter. The left-liberal daily Eleftherotypia analyses the proceedings: "The court's decision won't be binding, but it could create a unique precedent with repercussions for dozens of other cases all over the world. For this reason countries like Spain with strong separatist movements are keeping a close eye on the outcome of the proceedings. In all probability no real decision will be taken, precisely because it would have enormous repercussions. Consequently the court will avoid giving a precise description of what international law stipulates in such cases."
