Myanmar to be investigated over treatment of Rohingya population

Visiting Scholar at Queen Mary University of London’s International State Crime Initiative, Dr Ronan Lee, appeared on Al Jazeera News Hour to discuss the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) decision to push for an investigation into Myanmar’s treatment of the Rohingya population.

Dr Lee said: “Justice is going to catch up, slowly, but it is going to catch up with the perpetrators of these crimes within Myanmar. I do note that the ICC in its announcement today, did not suggest that its solely the military that will be investigated. They have approved an investigation to be undertaken. There's Rohingya in Myanmar at the moment who the UN says are in imminent danger of genocide.”
