- ℹ️ Description
Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi has urged judges at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to throw out a genocide case against the country. In her closing arguments at the end of a three-day hearing, Ms Suu Kyi said Myanmar’s inter-communal trust and unity rebuilt in Rakhine will risk being undermined if the ICJ rules in favour of ordering provisional measures in the country. More than 120,000 Rohingya remain in Internally Displaced Persons Camps in Rakhine, where they are not allowed to leave without permission and have limited access to education and healthcare.
