Rohingya Muslims in Europe hopeful for justice

December 10 will be historic day for Rohingya. This is the beginning of justice and accountability for decades-long genocidal sufferings of Rohingya," Hla Kyaw, chairman of the European Rohingya Council, told Anadolu Agency.

Hawzah News Agency -  Rohingya Muslims in Europe are hopeful for the outcome of a lawsuit at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) filed against Myanmar by West African country Gambia for atrocities against Rohingya Muslims in the country over the past few years.

"December 10 will be historic day for Rohingya. This is the beginning of justice and accountability for decades-long genocidal sufferings of Rohingya," Hla Kyaw, chairman of the European Rohingya Council, told Anadolu Agency.

"We have been waiting for justice for too long," he added, expressing hope that the "ICJ process goes quick and brings justice to Rohingya people as quickly as possible."

He also called for international community to create a "safe-zone" for Rohingya Muslims until the Myanmar government gave Rohingya Muslims their rights.

"Rohingya are still facing restrictions on freedom of movements; restrictions on rights to educations; restrictions on freedom of worship; restrictions on rights to seeking emergency medical care such as life-threatening situations; and many more restrictions. The situation has been ever deteriorating," he added.

"The international community must come together to pressure Myanmar both economically and politically. I do believe that it's everyone's moral responsibility to give justice to the Rohingya people," said Khairul Boshor, chairman of the Myanmar Muslim Association Netherlands.

Underlining that there was factual evidence showing Myanmar committed genocide against Rohingya, he said: "We have heard Myanmar government is forcing and misusing our Rohingya inside the Arakan to give false witnesses against our people at ICJ."

"Justice to Rohingya people is long overdue and our people have been desperately waiting for this day to come. I do believe that Gambia will definitely win the case," he also said.

"The ICJ will make decision based on authentic evidences. So that I believe we will get justice. But we will have to wait some time," also said Mohamed Eleyas, deputy of the Burmese Rohingya Community Netherlands.
