Kate Gibson, a counsel at the ICC who is representing groups of Rohingya living in the Cox’s Bazar refugee camp in Bangladesh, is pushing to have the International Criminal Court (ICC) to sit in Asia.

She said they were hoping the court would hold some or part of the hearings in Asia, possibly in Bangkok in Thailand, or even Bangladesh. 

The ICC has never sat outside of its headquarters in The Hague since it began in 2002.
