The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has scheduled public hearings for the Thai-Cambodian border dispute over Preah Vihear temple and its surrounding area in April 2013. 

The hearings have been planned for April 15 to 19 next year in The Hague, Netherlands, according  to an ICJ press release.

Both Thailand and Cambodia will be given three sessions each to present their oral arguments on the interpretation of the ICJ's 1962 verdict which awarded the possession of the ancient Khmer archaeological site to Cambodia. Thailand is still making claim to the ownership of the land the temple is situated on.
