Rohingya and Latin American human rights organisations have filed a landmark case of genocide against the military and government in Burma, under the principle of universal jurisdiction.

The case has been brought by the Burmese Rohingya Organisation UK, supported by Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo (Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo) and the Foundation for Peace and Justice (Fundación Servicio Paz y Justicia), two leading Latin American human rights organisations. They are represented by Tomás Ojea Quintana, the former United Nations Special Rapporteur on human rights in Burma.
