Bangladesh draws global attention to Rohingya issue

Asianbarta : Bangladesh has reiterated its support to the Rome Statute as it urges the world to bring an end to the culture of impunity and to work towards full implementation of the Statute.

Bangladesh Ambassador to the Netherlands Sheikh Mohammed Belal made this statement at the 16th Assembly of States Parties of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in New York recently, said the embassy on Saturday.

Drawing world’s attention to the devastating consequences of a prevalent culture of impunity in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, Ambassador Belal updated the Assembly on Bangladesh’s genuine effort to work with the government of Myanmar to facilitate the voluntary return of the forcibly displaced people to their homes in safety, security and dignity.

Ambassador Belal also shared the insights from Rohingyas, as they shared with the UN and civil society, expressing their appeal for bringing to justice those responsible for the commission of such heinous crimes in order for them to regain the trust and confidence to return to Myanmar.
