Myanmar: Suu Kyi after her return from ICJ: Has it enhanced her position?

Paper No. 6527                Dated 23-Dec-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

Suu Kyi returned from the Hague on 14th December.  She was received at the airport by enthusiastic colleagues and the people that included Members of Parliament, Locals, teachers and students.  Significantly, no Senior Army Official was present.

At the court, in her final submission, Suu Kyi said that the case filed by Gambia should be dismissed or alternatively, the provisional measures requested by Gambia should be dismissed. 

Myanmar- Suu Kyi at The Hague:

Paper No. 6522               Dated 12- Dec-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

It turned out that the State Councilor Suu Kyi did not take any Army Representative in her team to the Hague to defend Myanmar’s case in the ICJ despite speculations to the contrary and the Army’s open desire to be included in the team. Perhaps, she wanted to give the impression that she has acted on her own and  not at the insistence of the Army.

Myanmar: Suu Kyi leading the delegation to ICJ- Implications

Paper No. 6518                      Dated 30-Nov-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

It all began with Gambia on behalf of the OIC filed a Law suit at the United Nation’s International Court of Justice (ICJ) accusing Myanmar of breaching the 1948 Un Genocide Convention through a military campaign in Rakhine State. The ICJ with great alacrity took up the issue immediately and fixed December 12th for detailed hearing in the case!

Myanmar: Ugly turn with a wave of international indictments on Rohingya Issue:

Paper No. 6514                     Dated 21-Nov-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

Myanmar is facing three major international justice initiatives, all at the same time in connection with the alleged crimes against the Rohingya community in Myanmar. There appears to be a concerted effort to corner Myanmar not only on the Rohingya issue, but also in other ethnic conflicts in Rakhine, Kachin and Northern Shan States!
