Aung San Suu Kyi departs to face charges of the genocide of Rohingya Muslim

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi left for The Hague today (Sunday) to face charges of the genocide of the Rohingya Muslim minority in the International Court of Justice.

The Gambia, a tiny, mainly Muslim West African country had filed a lawsuit in the U.N’s top court accusing Buddhist-majority country of genocide, the most serious international crime, against its Rohingya Muslim minority.

More than 730,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar in 2017 after a brutal military-led crackdown which the U.N has said was executed with “genocidal intent” and included mass killings and rape.
