Grotius Centre contributes to media reporting on The Gambia v Myanmar case at the ICJ
Cecily Rose, Assistant Professor at the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies, has been involved in informing media reports about the recent provisional measures order delivered by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Gambia v Myanmar case.
The Gambia claims that Myanmar has violated the 1948 Genocide Convention through its treatment of the Rohingya in Rakhine state in Myanmar. On 23 January 2020, the ICJ unanimously granted most of The Gambia’s requests for provisional measures, by ordering Myanmar to prevent acts of genocide, to ensure that its military does not commit genocidal acts, and to prevent the destruction of evidence. In addition, the Court ordered Myanmar to report back to the Court, on a regular basis, concerning its compliance efforts. Cecily spoke with reporters from Agence France Presse and Al Jazeera, including a segment on Al Jazeera English Live.
