ICJ Probes Allegations of Myanmar Genocide



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Edith Mirante, the Director of Project Maje, an independent information project on Burma/Myanmar human rights and environmental issues. Author of 2 books on Burma and most recent book The Wind in the Bamboo: Journeys in Search of Asia's 'Negrito' Indigenous Peoples. She covered the 1990s Rohingya refugee exodus to Bangladesh.

A major case is playing out at the International Court of Justice in The Hague this week over allegations by the African nation of Gambia that Myanmar’s government persecuted its Rohingya Muslim minority. The case has gotten international attention in part because the face of the Myanmar government at the ICJ’s proceedings is Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, now defending the very same regime that for years held her under house arrest.
