BNP thanks Gambia for suing Myanmar

Dhaka, Jan 24 (UNI) Hailing the International Court of Justice's (ICJ) recent order for provisional measures to protect Rohingyas from alleged genocide in Rakhine state of Myanmar, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Friday thanked the Gambian government for filing the case against Myanmar.
'We congratulate the Gambia over the order of the International Court of Justice. We thank them as the order was given due to their initiative', BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said.
He said that ICJ has directed Myanmar to take steps to prevent genocide against Rohingyas. 'The trial of the case filed by The Gambia against Myanmar will continue. We thank The Gambia as it filed the case with the ICJ', he said.
ICJ Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf, said the International Court of Justice is of the opinion that the Rohingya in Myanmar remains extremely vulnerable.
An estimated 745,000 Rohingyas were forced to flee to Bangladesh since August 2017.
The ICJ accepted all four provisional measure requests in an unanimous (all 15 judges) verdict and asked Myanmar to submit a report within four months confirming measures taken, after that report every six months.
Fakhrul said their standing committee meeting expressed deep concern over the growing incidents of killing of Bangladeshis by Indian Border Security Force along the border.
