We are particularly concerned about the chemical nuclear waste dumping as it is destroying the basic fishing livelihood of the Somali people. And it has the grave potential of creating years of genetic problems
Washington, DC (Vocus) April 23, 2009
The U.S. African Chamber of Commerce is seeking legal counsel against the United Nations and the International Maritime Organization (IMO), in light of their alleged assisting of piracy along the coast of Somalia, and for the alleged dumping of chemical nuclear waste as well as massive illegal fishing, the group says.
The International Court of Justice acts as a world court. The Court has a dual jurisdiction, i.e., it decides, in accordance with international law, disputes of a legal nature that are submitted to it by States (jurisdiction in contentious cases); and it gives advisory opinions on legal questions at the request of the organizations of the United Nations or specialized agencies authorized to make such a request (advisory jurisdiction).
"We are particularly concerned about the chemical nuclear waste dumping as it is destroying the basic fishing livelihood of the Somali people. And it has the grave potential of creating years of genetic problems," said Martin Mohammed, President of the U.S. African Chamber of Commerce.
"The Somali Coast is being abused as a profit-making center for massive illegal fishing vessels, along with illegal factories for processing captured fish," Mohammed continues.
The President of the U.S. African Chamber of Commerce is hereby seeking legal professional counsel that can research the International Maritime Laws, the U.N. Environmental Protection Program, and Piracy matters. If you would like to help us in our cause for justice along these matters, please give the USACC a call at this telephone number: 202-465-0778.
