Rohingya Leaders Takes Firm Statement On ICC

We, the undersigned Rohingya leaders, seek referral of Burma to the International Criminal Court (ICC), ideally by the UN Security Council, but potentially by any UN member state that supports the ICC.

Support for international human rights laws and institutions is the overwhelming consensus among Rohingya leaders worldwide. Without ICC referral, justice for Rohingya is unlikely, and impunity for perpetrators of genocide and mass atrocities will be assured.
