This report is Confirmed true and is of High Priority. Here is why -
Following the International Criminal Court (ICC)’s decision on Thursday to authorize an investigation into alleged crimes committed against Myanmar’s Rohingya population, Nicholas Bequelin, Amnesty International’s Director for East and Southeast Asia said: “This decision marks an important step in the fight for justice and accountability in Myanmar. It sends a strong message to the orchestrators of atrocities against Rohingya that their days of impunity are numbered. “This decision comes just days after the Government of Gambia accused Myanmar of genocide in proceedings initiated at the International Court of Justice, and Rohingya activists filed a lawsuit in Argentinean Courts. The wheels of justice are turning – those who continue to shield perpetrators from accountability should think long and hard about which side of history they choose to be on. “While we welcome today’s decision, it only allows the ICC to investigate some of the military’s many crimes against ethnic minorities in Myanmar. This is why it remains essential that the UN Security Council refers the situation in the whole of the country to the ICC. Its ongoing failure to do so is a stain on its credibility and an abdication of its responsibilities.” Source: https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2019/11/myanmar-icc-referral/
