The International Court of Justice has traditionally adopted a very restrictive approach with respect to intervention of third States in contentious proceedings. In 2011 Greece was permitted to intervene in the case concerning Jurisdictional Immunities of the State between Germany and Italy. However, the Court did not define the legal interest justifying the permission to intervene accorded to Greece. The decision on the merits adopted on 3 February 2012 confirms that the notion of legal interest under article 62 of the Statute has potentially a broad scope and can include, among others, interests ‘by implication’ of third States.
