On last Sunday, about 700 people including Members of National League for Democracy party rallied in the streets of Yangoon to show support for Aung San Suu Kyi who is about to visit Hague to face the International Court for Justice (ICJ)
After the Myanmar military’s genocidal operation in August 2017 about 700,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh to save their lives. The military has committed a mass killing, rapes and the torching of homes.
Gambia has filed a historical and brave legal case against Myanmar at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on behalf of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The case alleges that Myanmar’s actions against the Rohingya are “genocidal in character because they are intended to destroy the Rohingya group in whole or in part.”
Although, Myanmar has strongly denied the charges by saying it’s ready to take action against wrong-doers if there is sufficient evidence. Hearings are likely to start from 10th December onwards. The case is expected to last for several years at its best.
