The Gambia on Thursday claimed that Myanmar could not able to provide enough evidence in favor of their opinion over the Rohingya genocide.
The lawyers’ panel for the West African nation said that Myanmar did not take legal action against the soldiers who were accused under international law, is equivalent to support genocide.
Speaking on the third and final day of hearings at the International Court of Justice in the case brought by Gambia under the 1948 Genocide Convention, the West African country’s lead lawyer repeated its demand for “provisional measures” to restrain the Myanmar military until the case is heard in full.
While giving the arguments against Myanmar’s denial, a lawyer of the Gambia placed several documents including pictures of torturing, atrocities and killing Rohingya people as the evidence of Genocide before the court.
A 17-member panel of judges of ICJ was hearing a case, the first international legal attempt to bring Myanmar to justice over alleged mass killings of the Rohingya minorities in 2017, filed by the Gambia on November 11.
The Myanmar military had carried out killings and mass rape with “genocidal intent” in the 2017 operation.
More than 730,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar to Bangladesh after the military launched its crackdown. The UN investigators have said 10,000 people may have been killed.
