Journalist Duncan Stearn takes a closer look at the International Court of Justice ruling on the border dispute between Thailand and Cambodia over the Preah Vihear temple ruins and changes his view on which country is in the right.
Many know that the dispute between Thailand and Cambodia over the Preah Vihear temple site on the Thai-Cambodian border revolves around a finding by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) 1962 ruling that the temple is on the Cambodian side of the border.
What many do not know is how the ICJ came to that judgement and that it was far from a unanimous decision. Journalist Duncan Stearn digs that little bit deeper and discovers that all was not well with the judgement and changes his own view during his investigation.
The importance of the judgement is that it is a contentious issue in Thai politics and it has led to military clashes between the two neighbouring countries in the last few years. Follow Duncan Stearn's investigation into the case and see if your view changes as well.
