ICJ to rule on emergency measures in Myanmar genocide case

UN court’s decision on measures to prevent more harm against Myanmar’s minority expected on Jan 23.

The International Court of Justice, the United Nations’ highest court, will issue a decision on a request for emergency measures in a genocide case against Myanmar on January 23, the Gambian Ministry of Justice said on Twitter on Monday.

The mainly Muslim West African country filed the suit in November, alleging Myanmar was committing “an ongoing genocide” against its minority Muslim population.
