It’s victory for humanity; FM about ICJ order

The order that came from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) a victory for humanity and a milestone for human rights activists across the world, said Awami Leauge Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Thursday.

Dr Momen told this is a victory for The Gambia, OIC, Rohingyas and of course, for Bangladesh. “God bless humanity and also the 'mother of humanity' Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.”

“It’s a victory for humanity, a milestone for human rights activists across all nations,” he added.

On the ohter hand, the court's president, Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf, said the International Court of Justice "is of the opinion that the Rohingya in Myanmar remain extremely vulnerable."

The ICJ accepted all 4 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.

Court used the term 'Rohingya' and also rejected Myanmar’s claim and asked it to stop genocide and atrocities against Rohingyas.
