Gambia Sues Myanmar for Genocide Against Rohingya Muslims

Gambia Sues Myanmar for Genocide Against Rohingya Muslims

UNITED NATIONS - In a highly unusual move, the tiny West African nation of The Gambia on Monday filed a lawsuit against Myanmar, accusing it of perpetrating a genocide on ethnic Rohingya Muslims which forced hundreds of thousands to flee the Asian nation.

The Gambia, with the full support of the 57-member Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC), filed the case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the United Nations' leading court in dealing with disputes between nations.

"The Gambia hopes by this case, and the OIC hopes by this case, to obtain a judgment from the International Court of Justice — the highest legal authority in the international community, that Myanmar is guilty of the crime of genocide against the Rohingya people," said Paul Reichler, a Washington, D.C.-based lawyer who is leading the Gambian legal team.
