The application also related to government’s notice of withdrawal that it had already delivered to the Secretary General of the United Nations, initiating the withdrawal.  Although cited as a respondent in this case, the HSF argued in favour of the challenge against the Government’s decision.

In February 2017, a Full Bench of the High Court found the notice of withdrawal, without parliamentary approval, to be constitutionally invalid.  It ordered Government to revoke its notice of withdrawal.  Government did not proceed with an appeal against the judgment.
