The International Court of Justice in the Hague, the highest court of the United Nations, has just given a landmark ruling on a case involving the treatment of the Rohingya people in Myanmar. The Court has declared that the violence being perpetrated against the country’s Muslim minority is classified as “at serious risk of genocide” under the terms of the UN’s genocide convention. The ICJ has called for the government of Myanmar to implement measures to promote “ethnic conciliation”.
