Myanmar has presented its first report to the International Court of Justice on steps it has taken to forestall the massacre of Rohingya Muslims, the top UN court said Monday.


The ICJ made a temporary request in January that larger part Buddhist Myanmar must take 'all measures inside its capacity' to stop the supposed decimation of the ethnic minority gathering, and that it must answer to the court at normal interims. 

The case was brought by the predominantly Muslim African province of The Gambia, and included a meeting in December 2019 where previous regular citizen pioneer and majority rules system symbol Aung San Suu Kyi introduced Myanmar's case. 

More than one million Rohingyas are mulling in camps in Bangladesh after a ruthless crackdown by Myanmar's military in 2017, while another 600,000 Rohingyas stay in Myanmar's southwestern Rakhine state. 

'On May 20, 2020, Myanmar presented the main report showed in the ICJ request on temporary proportions of January 23, 2020,' the International Court of Justice said in a tweet, without giving further subtleties.

The substance of Myanmar's report, of which a duplicate is to be sent to The Gambia, be that as it may, will stay classified until its appointed authorities choose to make it open, court authorities told AFP. 

Rohingya pressure gatherings, in any case, said that Myanmar had taken 'no important advances at all' to improve the circumstance in Rakhine since the ICJ choice in January. 

'No doubt about it — the annihilation against the Rohingya is proceeding with unabated in Myanmar,' said British-based Burmese Rohingya Organization UK president Tun Khin. 

He said that 'ladies, men and kids keep on enduring a shocking presence' in Rakhine. 

Tun Khin asked the ICJ to make open the report at the earliest opportunity and approached the universal network to 'intensify their weight on Myanmar' to follow the court's temporary measures. 

In a consistent decision, the ICJ early this year dismissed contentions by Nobel Peace laureate Suu Kyi that the degree of wrongdoings against the Rohingya may have been overstated, and that it was an inward issue. 

The court allowed Gambia's application for crisis measures, pending a full lawful case that could take years, and said that Rohingya in Myanmar 'remain amazingly helpless'. 

Myanmar was requested to report back following four months, and afterward at regular intervals after that. It was additionally requested not to pulverize any proof of violations against the Rohingyas.
