Referral Of Burma To The International Criminal Court

EDM number 1219 in 2017-19, proposed by Rushanara Ali on 01/05/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Asia, Asylum, Ethnic groups, Human rights, International law, International politics and government and United Nations.

That this House expresses concern that Min Aung Hlaing, Commander in Chief of the Burmese military, has paid no real price for the military offensive against the Rohingya which began in August 2017; notes that around 700,000 Rohingya have been forced to flee to Bangladesh, joining the more than 300,000 already there; agrees with assessments by the UN that what has happened constitutes ethnic cleansing and elements of genocide; believes that continuing impunity for violations of international law is emboldening Min Aung Hlaing to commit further human rights violations against the Rohingya and other ethnic groups in Burma; calls on the Government to publicly support in principle the UN Security Council referring Burma to the International Criminal Court; and further calls on the Government to work to build global consensus for a referral to the International Criminal Court from all members of the UN.

This motion has been signed by a total of 87 MPs.
