votes to seven "the court upholds the objection to jurisdiction raised by India" presiding judge Ronny Abraham said and therefore the tribunal "cannot proceed to the merits of the case" The tribunal set up to resolve rows between nations found it lacked the jurisdiction in the case as there had been no prior recorded dispute or negotiations over the nuclear issue between the Marshall Islands and the nuclear-armed neighbours India and Pakistan The tiny Pacific island nation was ground zero for a string of nuclear tests on its pristine atolls between 1946-58 carried out by the United States as the Cold War arms race gathered momentum Initially in 2014 Majuro accused nine countries of failing to comply with the 1968 nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which seeks to inhibit the spread of atomic bombs But the ICJ already failed to take up cases against the other countries — China France Israel North Korea Russia and the United States — as they have not recognised the court’s jurisdiction Israel has also never formally admitted to having nuclear weapons The Marshall Islands has maintained that by not stopping the nuclear arms race Britain India and Pakistan continued to breach their obligations under the treaty — even if New Delhi and Islamabad have not signed the pact The treaty commits all nuclear weapon states "to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament" Majuro is calling for nuclear powers to take "all necessary measures" to carry out what it considers to be their obligations under the treaty ‘Islands vaporised’ At a March hearing Majuro’s lawyers painted a vivid picture of the horrors seen after 67 nuclear tests were carried out on Bikini and Enewetak atolls "Several islands in my country were vaporised and others are estimated to remain uninhabitable for thousands of years" Tony deBrum a former Marshall Islands foreign minister told the court The so-called "Operation Castle" tests in March and April 1954 were particularly devastating and resulted in massive contamination because of the nuclear fall-out "The entire sky turned blood-red" said deBrum who witnessed the explosion of the largest-ever US-built nuclear device called "Castle Bravo" as a nine-year-old boy Critics have argued however that the ICJ action is a distraction and that the islanders’ real fight is with Washington which carried out the tests in their backyard They contend that the case has no relation to the victims’ claims for increased compensation better health care and clean-ups to render the sites habitable again Experts however say the islands hoped the three cases before the ICJ will thrust nuclear disarmament talks which have stalled over the past two decades back into the spotlight Even if the case has no direct impact the Marshall Islands’ residents "perhaps feel that the more the difficulties with nuclear weapons are brought to the public consciousness the better" said Jens Iverson assistant professor of Public International Law at Leiden University "They may hope that the world may become a safer place" Iverson told AFP With inputs

directorial Gully BoyBy: Editorial | Published: August 27 2016 12:04 am Top News One in four tuberculosis patients worldwide is an Indian Epidemiologists regard the tuberculosis bacteria as the Indian public health system’s greatest bugbear If a study published in the latest edition of the Lancet Infectious Diseases Journal is anything to go by the problem might be more daunting that it was earlier thought to be The good news however is that we are closer than ever before to identifying the exact magnitude of the problem The number of tuberculosis patients in the country was earlier reckoned to be 22 million But there were always question marks on the accuracy of this figure because it was difficult to ascertain the exact number of patients who sought private treatment It was believed that private clinics and hospitals treat about 8 million tuberculosis patients while 14 million patients consult government-run medical centres A joint study by the Indian government’s Central TB Division the Imperial College of London and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation confirms what had long been suspected: Many more tuberculosis patients seek treatment from the private sector than government hospitals The study estimates that more than 2 million patients consult private doctors — even pharmacists — and the country’s tuberculosis burden could be more than 35 million people India’s private healthcare system is largely unregulated especially in matters related to treating tuberculosis This means that patients are rarely educated about the disease and do not receive proper support The authors of the Lancet paper argue that the absence of proper protocols in private hospitals and clinics often means that patients stop treatment as soon as they feel better They do not complete the requisite six to nine months of therapy A study published in March 2016 in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene highlighted another problem that arises when patients consult private physicians The private doctors interviewed in the study administered broad spectrum antibiotics to tuberculosis patients as the first course of treatment They did not ask for a lab investigation and focused on treating the symptoms A patient had to consult a doctor several times before being suspected of tuberculosis Stopping therapy midway exposes a patient to a virulent strain of the tuberculosis bacteria: One resistant to the multi-drug therapy used to treat the disease Delays in diagnosis compound the problem According to the WHO India accounts for 64000 multi-drug resistant tuberculosis patients The figure could be much more in the light of the Lancet study In 2012 the Revised National TB Control Programme introduced protocols that made it mandatory for private healthcare providers to report the tuberculosis cases they treat The figures thrown up by the Lancet study show that much more needs to be done to regulate treatment of tuberculosis outside the state
