Can anyone re translate that in proper english? Does that mean the 'Dalai Lama' or a representative of his must a appear in court in Delhi?  Why do these judge's and lawyers always write in double dutch to confuse us?   I think this case is very interesting indeed, i think the 'Dalai Lama has gotten himself in trouble with the law.  One's negative actions will always catch up with oneself eventually.  An action is never wasted. Nobody is above the law, not even you, the so called great 'Dalai Lama'!

This means that before the judge accepts to start the action against the Dalai Lama, this person has the right to say that there are reasons that should prevent the legal action to even start.

Any lawyer can dig up some obscure rule to prevent the lawsuit to be started.

No matter what, whether the judge decides to start the action or not, at this point it's not going to be talking about the facts that are relevant to our issue, but possibly about jurisdiction only.

For instance, let's say that the DL's lawyers say that this legal procedure is being initiated in Delhi, and that, because the Dalai Lama is a legal resident of Dharamsala, the lower courts of this place should see it first. If this were a reasonable jurisdiction obstacle, then the Delhi judge should rule that the action be sent to Dharamsala's court ... and then good luck!  :-[

So do not open the champagne before the wedding, please!

Can we not take the Dalai Lama to the Hague? :)   That's where the ruthless dictators end up!

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations (UN).
The seat of the Court is at the Peace Palace in The Hague (Netherlands). Of the six principal organs of the United Nations, it is the only one not located in New York (United States of America).

Contentious Jurisdiction
In the exercise of its jurisdiction in contentious cases, the International Court of Justice has to decide, in accordance with international law, disputes of a legal nature that are submitted to it by States. An international legal dispute can be defined as a disagreement on a question of law or fact, a conflict, a clash of legal views or of interests.

Only States may apply to and appear before the International Court of Justice. International organizations, other collectivities and private persons are not entitled to institute proceedings before the Court.

Advisory Jurisdiction
Since States alone have capacity to appear before the Court, public (governmental) international organizations cannot as such be parties to any case before it. A special procedure, the advisory procedure, is, however, available to such organizations and to them alone.
