    News Item #1 On 11th December, the International Court of Justice, will deliver its Judgment in the case concerning Immunities and Criminal Proceedings (Equatorial Guinea v. France). The case concerns the request of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea for the ICJ to hold that the French Republic, by entering a building used as the diplomatic mission of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea in Paris, by searching, attaching and confiscating the said building, its furnishings and other property, has acted in violation of its obligations under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.   News Item #2 An expert panel of international and environmental lawyers has been assembled to work on a legal definition of the “international crime of ecocide, similar to definitions of the international crimes of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.” The panel, co-chaired by Professor Philippe Sands and Judge Florence Mumba was set up by the Stop Ecocide Foundation at the request of Swedish parliamentarians.   News Item #3 Trial Chamber IX of the International Criminal Court (ICC) has postponed the delivery of the judgment in The Prosecutor v. Dominic Ongwen to 4 February 2021. The trial in this case opened on 6 December 2016. Dominic Ongwen is accused of 70 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity allegedly committed in northern Uganda.   News Item #4 The Grand chamber of the European Court of Human Rights has made a judgement in the case of Guðmundur Andri Ástráðsson v. Iceland.  The case concerned the applicant’s allegation that the new Icelandic Court of Appeal (Landsréttur) which had upheld his conviction for road traffic offences was not “a tribunal established by law”, on account of irregularities in the appointment of one of the judges who heard his case. The Court held that there had been a violation of the right to a tribunal established by law.  News Item #5 The American Society of International Law is now accepting applications for the Francis Lieber Prize which is awarded to the authors of publications that are considered outstanding in the field of law and armed conflict. The deadline for the application, including a letter or message of nomination, must be received by 10 January 2021.
