International Court of Justice rules that it has jurisdiction to adjudicate on alleged violations of Genocide convention by Myanmar.
The Court said that Gambia has power to invoke the powers under the Genocide Convention to bring to its notice the alleged violations by Myanmar.
The ICJ held that any State party to the Convention can invoke the jurisdiction of the Court even if it is not specially affected by the alleged violations.
This is in the case brought by Gambia against Myanmar on allegations of genocide of #Rohingyas
ICJ observes that #Rohingyas of Myanmar forms a "protected group" under the Genocide convention.

We cannot call it #India-#Bangladesh prime ministerial meeting in true sense of the term, since #SheikhHasina came to the WEF meeting. The bilateral visit is scheduled later. However despite its limited scope I find the meeting very encouraging and beneficial for either side. 1/n
Key takeaways from #Modi-#SheikhHasina
Meeting 1) The LPG deal is consequent to #India's decision to invest in LPG terminal in #Chittagong. With time we wil see rise in supplies and #Bangladesh-#NorthEast LPG pipeline. 2/n
LPG deal is a mirror of #India-Bangladesh #diesel pipeline with the exception that in the case of #LPG, #Bangladesh is also getting #FDI. This is early stages of creation of a regional oil & gas grid, which may be expanded to #CLMV #Asean in the days to come. #Modi- #Hasina

#IBARome@IntlCrimCourt⁩ Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda says emphatically that pushback by the American govt, & other states, will not deter the ICC from doing its work without fear or favour. #CrimesAgainstHumanity #genocide
ICC can be faced with total non-cooperation, dwindling resources, hostility etc. Forms part of challenge to conducting investigations. We need to anticipate such challenges. US isn’t 1st state to refuse to cooperate with ICC, eg Sudan, but we still collected evidence: Bensouda.
Since I announced investigation into Philippines. I’m sure you’ve heard response of leader, including threats against Prosecutor. But, eg, see Burundi where I opened prelim invest. Burundi immediately withdrew, but we ctd investigation & obtained satisfactory evidence- Bensouda.

Shabaz is a notty boy. He used to bully his neighbours (who belonged to diff religion) because peaceful co-existence is a difficult job for his ppl. One day, the nbrs got angry and threw Shabaz and his people out of the colony. Now, he starts playing victim card(1/n)

You are the head of another colony where Shabaz along with his huge family wants to settle now. Your secret agencies have warned that they will create problems. WILL YOU ALLOW THEM? PS: He won't give any rent. He will sit, eat and reproduce in wholesale. (2/n)
