The United Nations’ top court has ordered Burma to do all it can to prevent genocide against the Rohingya people, reports the New York based Associated Press.

Anna Roberts, executive director of Burma Campaign UK, called the order “a major blow to Aung San Suu Kyi and her anti-Rohingya policies.”

Anna Roberts urged the international community to press Aung San Suu Kyi to enforce the court’s order: “The chances of Aung San Suu Kyi implementing this ruling will be zero unless significant international pressure is applied. So far, the international community has not been willing to apply pressure on Aung San Suu Kyi over her own appalling record on human rights.”
