THE HAGUE: The International Court of Justice has ruled that Singapore has sovereignty over Pulau Batu Puteh while Malaysia owns Middle Rocks.
As for the South Ledge, the ICJ ruled that it belongs to the state in whose territorial waters it is located.
ICJ vice-president, Awn Shawkat Al-Khasawneh read out the judgment, which was carried live over RTM1 Friday.
Pulau Batu Putih, which Singapore calls Pedra Branca, an isle no larger than half a football field, is about 14.3km from Tanjung Penyusop in Johor and 46.3km from Singapore.
Middle Rocks is about half a nautical mile from Pulau Batu Putih and 1.7 nautical miles from South Ledge. Read more from the star here.

(What a consolation! Didnt Rais Yatim express confidence of having the ICJ ruling in Malaysia's favour?)
