The Gambia, Africa lawsuit filed at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) charging Burma with genocide against the Rohingya begins today. In three days of hearings before a 16-member panel of UN judges, the lawsuit asks the ICJ to impose “provisional measures” to protect the Rohingya before the case can be heard. Aung San Suu Kyi will be heading up Burma’s legal team & is expected to deny the genocide & challenge Gambia’s legal right to pursue the case. Rohingya refugees living in Bangladesh will be unable to watch the proceedings because the Bangladeshi government imposed a mobile phone & internet blackout on the refugee camps.
