ICJ orders Myanmar to protect Rohingya

Rohingya population may breathe a sigh of relief following the International Court of Justice’s order on Myanmar to take urgent measures to prevent genocide on the Indo-Aryan ethnic group in the country.

Summary of the judgement was that the presiding judge, Abdulqawi Yusuf stated that Myanmar should prevent all actions prohibited under the Nineteen forty-eight Genocide Convention.

The ruling which was cheered by refugees is seen as a first major legal victory since being forced from their homes.

More than Seven hundred and thirty-thousand Rohingya fled Myanmar after a military-led crackdown in Twenty-seventeen.

They were forced into squalid camps across the border in Bangladesh.
