Myanmar: All round Pressure on the Rohingya Issue:

Paper No. 6565                  Dated   14-July-2019

By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan

A month ago, the International Criminal Court (ICC) said that it plans to initiate pretrial proceedings in what could be termed as a ‘legal action’ against the top Myanmar Military leadership including its chief.  It is the contention of the United Nations that driving away the Rohingyas now numbering over 1.1 million amounted to “Ethnic Cleansing” with a genocidal intent.

Kyaw Zwa Moe, the English Editor of Irrawaddy has written a piece starting with this title “Civilinising this Militarised Nation” and comes to the conclusion that it may take another three decades.
