A former judge of an international tribunal and a law lecturer in the UK are part of a team of eight hired to defend Kenya in a maritime dispute filed by Somalia.

Prof Sean Murphy of George Washington School of Law will be leading the team alongside Justice Tullion Treves, a a former judge at the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea. Justice Treves also appeared before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in a similar case pitting Peru versus Chile.

Prof Phoebe Okowa, lecturer of International Law at the Queen Mary University in London is the only Kenyan. She was a part of a maritime case filed by Gambia against Myanmar. She is an alumnus of the University of Nairobi where she graduated with First Class honours.

Also in the team is Prof Makane Mbengue, a Senegalese, who teaches international law at the University of Geneva. He too has litigated before the ICJ, including representing the African Union in the advisory on the Legal Consequences on the Separation of the Chagos Archipelago from Mauritius in 1965. He will be the team coordinator.

From the same university (Geneva) is Prof Laurence Boisson De Chazournes who is also an international law expert. She holds two nationalities – Swiss and French.

Another member of the team is Christian Tams, a professor at Gasglow University. The German national will give her expertise, having appeared before the same court in different cases.

Kenya has also taken Eran Sthoeger from Israel. He too participated in Peru’s case against Chile.
Also on the list is President of Sovereign Geographic Coalter Lathrop. He will offer cartographic and legal assistance to Kenya’s team in land and maritime boundary delimitation.

Furthermore, in the only similar case to Somalia-Kenya cited, the Court ruled in favor of Somalia's position

Went to Court

Somalia/Equidistance
Peru/Equidistance

Chile/Parallel
Kenya/Parallel

Won = Peru
Lost = Chile

This is Kenyan plan B, in my sources, to of new advocates has dividing maritme dispute judgement experience.

Kenyas plan B is these new advocates to beg the court dividing percent verdict about Somalia 50 Kenya 50 or minimum Somalia 70 percent Kenya 30 percent.
This is all about the new advocates and the Kenyas new plan.

This is straight forward is a case of some one claiming something that does not belong to him, Kenya have no legitimate claim but simply perceives Somalia as a nation in turmoil and thus a soft touch and easy grab

And he has defended figures such as Kenya's Deputy President William Ruto at the ICC - which threw out charges of murder, deportation and persecution following the country's 2007 elections - and the son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Saifd Al Islam.

The Legal team representing Somalia is one of the most prestigious law firms in the world, they have offices in Boston, D.C, New York, London and Paris among other places. We are in good hands, this 'turmoil' is nothing but the growing pains of instilling law and order.

Somalia's legal team is being led by very experienced attorneys, chief among them being two Harvard Law Grads that are partners in their firm. This case is going to be a win since there is legal precedence on our side. Even kenyan policymakers admit to this openly on their national networks.
