Hon Thomas Tayebwa Congratulates Judge Julia Ssebutinde Over Her Elevation At The ICJ

The deputy speaker of Parliament, Hon Thomas Tayebwa has extended his congratulations to Ugandan judge, Julia Ssebutinde. This is after her elevation at the International Court Of Justice (ICJ) at the Hague in the Netherlands.

The ICJ revealed that Judge Julia Ssebutinde has been promoted to the role of the vice president of this high-ranking court.

Apparently, she was elected by her peers for a term of three years. Well, she has been a member of the ICJ since 2012. And before that, she was a special judge for Sierra Leone between 2005-2011.

Hon Tayebwa was among the first high-ranking Ugandans to congratulate her. He said that her colleagues had recognized her exceptional qualifications in the pursuit of justice.

“Justice Julia Sebutinde, I extend my sincerest congratulations on your election as the Vice President of the International Court of Justice. Your esteemed colleagues on the bench have recognized your exceptional qualifications and dedication to the pursuit of justice. This appointment is a testament to your unwavering commitment to upholding the principles of fairness and equity.”

The Ruhinda north MP added that he believes she can navigate the complexities of the legal landscape with great wisdom. Additionally, he said that this is a well-earned promotion and he believes the judge will make immense contributions to the ICC.

Ssebutinde became a topic of controversy last month globally. This is after she was the only person on a 17-member committee to disregard all proposals to halt the Israel-Gaza war.

There was an Israeli judge who even accepted some of the proposals but Ssebutinde quashed all. This earned her widespread global criticism on social media.

The government of Uganda even issued a statement distancing itself from her opinion which they termed a personal one.
