More than 100 UK MPs have called on the British government to make an intervention supporting The Gambia’s Rohingya genocide case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), as human rights violations against the Rohingyas continue.

Rushanara Ali and Jeremy Hunt, co-chairs of All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Rights of the Rohingya, signed the letter on behalf of 104 UK MPs, who said, “We are convinced that if the United Kingdom joins the case, it will bring significant added value, both legally and symbolically.”

Rushanara Ali is Chair and Jeremy Hunt is Vice-Chair of the APPG on Democracy in Burma, administered by Burma Campaign UK.
