Gambia to file genocide case against Myanmar

Diplomatic Correspondent, Dhaka

Gambia will take Myanmar to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to face charges of genocide against its Rohingya minority, Gambia’s attorney general and Minister for Justice Abubacarr Marie Tambadou announced at a conclave on Justice and Accountability for the Rohingyas at The Hague.  This will be the first time the Myanmar authorities will be accused of genocide at the ICJ. The charges will be filed by the Gambian Ministry of Justice’s legal team.

 “I confirm that on October 4, I’ve instructed our lawyers to file the case at the International Court of Justice,” Abubacarr M. Tambadou told participants at the 18 October Conclave, a press release said.  “I could smell the stench of genocide from miles away when I visited the Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar. It was all too familiar for me after a decade of interacting with the victims of the Rwandan mass rapes, killings and genocide,” the press release quoted him as saying.  Abubacarr M. Tambadou previously served as a special assistant to the prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.  The crimes against the Rohingya people, he added, illustrate the failure of the international community to prevent genocide, 75 years after it committed itself to the promise of “never again” at the Nuremberg Trials.
