Is the Rohingya case possible for the military council?

The International Criminal Court (ICC) on Monday indicted the Gambia on charges of genocide against the Rohingya. Military Council Minister Ko Ko Hlaing and military council lawyer Cristoper Staker also resigned.

These arguments follow in the footsteps of State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi in 2019. The military has denied that Gambia has jurisdiction over the genocide charges, and has ruled that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is not included.

Ma Wai Wai Nu, a human rights activist who monitors the Rohingya issue, said that every country has a responsibility to abide by the laws of the world and that all have the right to take action against violators.

“As an observer of international law, their arguments are extremely weak. In other words, under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICJ), the international community has a responsibility to abide by the rules and regulations issued by the United Nations, especially in countries that have the right to prosecute.”

Ma Weiwei Nu said the military council’s statement that the OIC was not allowed to be behind the Gambia case was also disguising the OIC as an evil organization.

The National Unity Government (NUG) has withdrawn its protests in Burma, including the 2019 Aung San Suu Kyi defense.

Ma Wai Wai Nu said the military supported the NUG’s actions because not only of the crimes now in the ICJ but also of the regime’s crimes against the people of Burma.

“In this context, if the NUG government does not stand up for the people with the new ideas and perspectives of our victims, it will be difficult for us to achieve the new nation, peace and federal democracy that we want to build.

NUG Human Rights Minister Aung Myo Min said the decision by the NUG government was due to a change in circumstances. Aung Myo Min, who is in The Hague, said the NUG would accept the ICJ’s ruling.

“The issue of Burma will be resolved inside Burma. It is not acceptable for the international community to intervene in such a situation. The judiciary is very weak at home. Therefore, we, the NUG, accept the ICJ’s judicial system.” “We can not accept it. This is a lawsuit against the country, so it needs to be a true representative of the country.”

The ICJ’s chief justice, Joan E Donoghue, said the court had accepted the military council’s decision, not allowing it to recognize the government, but to represent it.
