probing atrocities against Rohingyas

PM assures ICC of all support

UNB, Munich

Welcoming the decision of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to send a team for 'preliminary examination' of the atrocities on Rohingyas by Myanmar Army, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday assured them of extending all necessary support in this regard.

"The ICC team is scheduled to visit Bangladesh next month," Foreign Secretary Md. Shahidul Haque said while briefing reporters about the outcome of a meeting of the Prime Minister with ICC Chief prosecutor Dr Fatu Bensouda.

Shahidul Haque said the Prime Minister and the ICC chief prosecutor discussed the issues on the trial of genocide of Pakistani Army in Bangladesh in 1971 and atrocities on Rohingya nationals of Myanmar.

Sheikh Hasina laid emphasis on bringing the perpetrators of the genocide of Pakistani Army in Bangladesh in 1971 to book.

About the trial of the atrocities on Rohingyas, the ICC chief prosecutor said ICC has already brought the Rohingya issue under its jurisdiction and established a court for trial of the perpetrators.

Fatu Bensouda said the ICC team will visit Bangladesh to have the 'preliminary examination' aimed at establishing the case.
