Dhaka : Rohingyas welcome French intervention in ICJ case
French President Emmanuel Macron has said that France, a permanent member of the United Nations, will intervene in the case of the Rohingya, which the Gambia began accusing Myanmar of genocide in 2019.
Bangladesh The French President, who is visiting Dhaka, said this in a meeting with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on September 11, according to a joint statement issued by the Bangladesh Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Rohingyas who arrived in Bangladesh also welcomed the new president’s statement. Since France announced that it will intervene, the Rohingya side has become stronger in the case filed at the ICJ, Rohne San Lwin, a Rohingya activist, said.
“After submitting the case to the ICJ, Maldives first announced that it would intervene. The Netherlands and Canada announced it again. We also announced the UK and Germany last year. Now finally France. Now there are six countries. They don’t say what their legal process is. What we see is that the case has become much stronger. Gambia is not the only country in Africa, but five countries in the west. Even among these five countries, now that France has joined, the United Nations Security Council has joined the two countries, so the case is stronger.”
British-based Burmese-Rohingya Association (UK) chairman U Tun Khin also said on his Twitter account that France’s participation is good news.
Analysts also said that they expect the intervening countries to take action against the military group.
Rohingya activists are calling for the intervention of more than 150 countries that are signatories to the Genocide Convention in this case, which Gambia has sued Myanmar for.
The Rohingyas who arrived in Bangladesh expressed their gratitude for the French President’s statement.
“We are happy that the French president said so. I believe. Thank you. As for us, we believe that we can take action against the military councils because the international ICJ has talked about them. We want to demand that the criminals who committed the crime be punished.”
This is the country of Bangladesh. U Kairo, a teacher who lives in Cox’s Bazar Refugee Camp No. 11, said.
The French president also said that France has donated another million euros, equivalent to 1.7 million US dollars, to the World Food Organization, which is supporting the Rohingya refugees.
U Kyaw Myint, a Rohingya refugee who lives in the Balukkhali refugee camp, said that he is happy to participate in this for the refugees who have not been able to return safely to Bangladesh for more than six years.
“It has been more than six years since we, the Rohingyas, were committed genocide and were driven to Bangladesh. It has been seven years. To this day, the Military Council has not seen anything done to bring us in line with international human rights standards. We are very happy that France is taking part in these difficult times today.”
He also said that France will work with its partners in the UN Security Council to condemn the ongoing genocide by the Military Council.
Bangladesh Ko Aung Myain, a Rohingya refugee living in the Kutu Palaung refugee camp, said that he hoped France’s cooperation would help not only the Rohingya refugees but also the violence currently being faced in Myanmar.
“We think this is a good opportunity to get justice. France is also a country with veto power. Not only for the Rohingya, but also in Myanmar, human rights violations and mass killings continue. We hope this will help a lot not only for the Rohingya but also for Myanmar.”
The Gambia has filed a lawsuit against Myanmar at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for the genocide of the Rohingya.
During the National League for Democracy (NLD) government, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi herself went to the ICJ to settle the matter, and after the coup d’état, a military council delegation led by U Ko Ko Hlaing resolved it once in February 2022.
2023 for this case.
