There is a credible evidence of genocide and crimes against humanity in Myanmar against the Rohingyas, according to the primary verdict of a symbolic tribunal held at Chittagong University yesterday.
Chairman of the three-member tribunal Barrister M Amirul Islam, a senior advocate of the Supreme Court, gave the verdict. The other members of the tribunal were Dr SM Masum Billah, an assistant professor of the law department at Jagannath University, and Barrister Badrul Hasan Kachi, an advocate of Supreme Court.
All the members of the prosecution, defence, victims and witnesses were students of the university's law faculty. The Society for Critical Legal Studies (SCLS), a study circle of the faculty, arranged the tribunal.
The tribunal in the verdict also said more evaluation and monitoring are needed for a final verdict.
