Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi facing hearing in charges of genocide of Rohingya Muslims
December 09, 2019

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi will face hearing on the charges of genocide of Rohingya Muslim minority in the International Court of Justice in Hague beginning from today.  

Gambia, a tiny, mainly Muslim West African country had filed a lawsuit in  the U.N top court,  accusing Myanmar of the genocide 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.
