UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Myanmar, Professor Yanghee Lee, on Friday called for the Myanmar Army Chief, Senior General Ming Aung Hlaing, to be prosecuted for genocide against the Rohingya. Prof Lee, who was barred from entering Myanmar by civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi, made the statement during her visit to refugee camps in Cox Bazar in Bangladesh which have now swelled to over 1.1 million Rohingya.
The path to actual prosecution for the orchestrators of this genocide is long and uncertain. China is expected to block proceedings through the UN Permanent Security CouncilDr. Azeem Ibrahim
