Justice for Rohingya MinorityThe Myanmar state is orchestrating a humanitarian catastrophe. Some 1.1 million Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh for fear of losing their lives. They’ve been described as the world ’s most persecuted minority, subjected to crimes against humanity. Now it’s time for justice.
Who we are
Justice for Rohingya Minority is a diverse group of lawyers, jurists, academics, campaigners, professionals, and community leaders joining forces in a legal campaign for the prosecution of those responsible for crimes against humanity in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.
“Rohingya Muslims stood by Britain in WWII. Now they are dying, where is our loyalty? The victims are Muslim, and the persecutors are Buddhist – which doesn’t neatly fit our Western world-view.”
