“Decisions of the Court shall be read in open court and shall state the reasons on which they are based. Subject to the provisions on review contained in this Protocol, such decisions shall be final and immediately enforceable.” This means that if The Gambia has respect for the treaty it signed it would have no choice but to comply.

Now, there is a fourth decision. What will it do?
