Myanmar files first Rohingya case report to top UN court

Myanmar has submitted its first report to the International Court of Justice on steps it has taken to prevent the genocide of Rohingya Muslims, the top UN court said Monday.

The ICJ made a provisional order in January that majority-Buddhist Myanmar must take ‘all measures within its power’ to stop the alleged genocide of the ethnic minority group, and that it must report to the court at regular intervals.

The case was brought by the mainly Muslim African state of The Gambia, and featured a hearing in December 2019 where former civilian leader and democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi presented Myanmar’s case.

Over one million Rohingyas are languishing in camps in Bangladesh after a brutal crackdown by Myanmar’s military in 2017, while another 600,000 Rohingyas remain in Myanmar’s southwestern Rakhine state.

‘On May 20, 2020, Myanmar submitted the first report indicated in the ICJ order on provisional measures of January 23, 2020,’ the International Court of Justice said in a tweet, without giving further details.

The contents of Myanmar’s report, of which a copy is to be sent to The Gambia, however, will remain confidential until its judges decide to make it public, court officials told AFP.

Rohingya pressure groups, however, said that Myanmar had taken ‘no meaningful steps whatsoever’ to improve the situation in Rakhine since the ICJ decision in January.

‘Make no mistake — the genocide against the Rohingya is continuing unabated in Myanmar,’ said British-based Burmese Rohingya Organisation UK president Tun Khin.

He said that ‘women, men and children continue to suffer a hellish existence’ in Rakhine.

Tun Khin urged the ICJ to make public the report as soon as possible and called on the international community to ‘redouble their pressure on Myanmar’ to comply with the court’s provisional measures.

In a unanimous ruling, the ICJ early this year rejected arguments by Nobel Peace laureate Suu Kyi that the extent of crimes against the Rohingya might have been exaggerated, and that it was an internal affair.

The court granted Gambia’s application for emergency measures, pending a full legal case that could take years, and said that Rohingya in Myanmar ‘remain extremely vulnerable’.

Myanmar was ordered to report back after four months, and then every six months after that. It was also ordered not to destroy any evidence of crimes against the Rohingyas.

Steps taken to prevent genocide? What sort of mockery of humanity is this ?

Genocide has already taken place, women have already been raped, millions have already been displaced.

Pretty sure the whiteys would be bombing Myanmar to the ground, if the Rohingya had been Christians or White (remember Serbia). Double standards galore.....

This is the problem we always think what the white nations will do, sometimes the Muslims need to wake the hell up and do something on there own as well --

Arabs are the ones with the cash, they are to busy licking boots of the west and almost whilst every other Muslims country is crippled in poverty.

The Serbs were Christians and the Bosnians were Muslims and it was the Serbs who killed the Bosnians and contrary to your claims it was the Americans who saves Bosnian muslims by punishing Serbian generals particularly Radovan Karadzic.

The Rohingya issue is different from Bosnian genocide. Myanmar has a powerful backing from China, Russia, India, ASEAN. European countries are slowly becoming more economically engaged with Myanmar. The sanctions from USA is also not that severe tbh.

I'm much worried about Bangladesh as Bangladesh does not have friends at all when it comes to the Rohingya issue. Even the UN now speaks the same tune as the Burmese now.

You completely missed my point, I mean that they took action because those people were Caucasian/White.

Expect a rapid response from the UN when, If :

a) victims are white or European

b) victims are Christians (especially if Catholic or Protestant)

Unfortunately for the Rohingya minority, they don't figure into these criterion so there will be no instant justice for them

You need to understand why Myanmar is getting all backing from USA, China..... why European countries are economically getting engaged with Myanmar..... why Bangladesh doesn't have friends at all and why even UN is now speaking same tune as Myanmar.... why? Why? Why?

Because Myanmar is a peaceful country and Bangladesh is not.....

World is smart enough to read the real faces of these countries.....

Its all national interest. The Serbs were pro Russians and so the US took action against them. Just like US is supporting Uyghurs against China. Nothing to do with Muslim/Christian etc

No nothing like that. The thing is Myanmar is a big country with greater resource and so everyone is eyeing on Myanmar.

It all comes down to economic interests.

Other variables are bullshit

It's more than national interest, the government of the United States may be secular but the people who cast votes aren't.

America isn't doing squat for the Uyghurs and no the other variables aren't shit. Look closely there's more to it than meets the eye.

Religion plays a very significant role in European societies much more so than they'd like to admit.

Also the Rohingyas are somewhat a hated group. After Bangladesh, Malaysia and Indonesia also started throwing them out of their lands. I think their international recognition for being criminals, drug peddlers, human trafficker is making international community lose sympathy for them.

Poverty will make you a criminal and more importantly, it will make you lose touch with humanity. Besides humanity has let the Rohingya down, so it's foolhardy to expect them to be law abiding individuals.

And it is in the best interest of Indonesia and Malaysia, to deport these individuals. This why they're deporting them, nothing more to it.

But Bangladesh government should act. This crisis will bece more complicated and difficult to solve in the future if the BD government keeps on delaying

Bangladesh government is useless, surely you should already know this.

The Rohingya will never go back unless Burmese generals magically learn why genocide and forced displacement is wrong. Possible sure, likely? No.

Perhaps we can invade Myanmar and send the Rohingya back after we secure some land for them. Possible in theory, realistically never happening.

The world works in strange ways, the wheels of justice don't always turn and nature isn't just.

Please blame the country's weak foreign policy and the effort to please every country that includes Burma itself for the quagmire that BD now is in. Its leadership is just weak that do not draw respect from others.

By the way, a Muslim BD has always been receiving economic doles from the Christian, Buddhist and even Hindu countries. But, why asking the Christians to help us when the Muslims themselves think themselves an all powerful group of people though it lacks everything and asks the Christians for its survival?

Living in Bangladesh amongst muslims I can say you are correct. I know staunch muslims(Katmollah in Bangla) who regularly vomits the same thing that is we we muslims were this and that some 1000s of years ago. Its like muslims are still living in the past.

Even in mosques and madrassas you will find Islamic scholars doing the same thing. They will tell you tales of past glory, how muslims used to be this and that but won't give advice for the future generations.
