The top Gambian International Criminal Attorney and former lead counsel of the Truth Commission was appointed by the International Court of Justice in The Hague, The Netherlands, last week to spearhead the investigations and prosecution of Myanmar’s government security agencies accused of committing genocide against Rohingya Muslims.

The appointment of a Gambian lawyer to lead the investigation and prosecution of this case further solidifies the Gambia’s standing as a major advocate for international human rights law worldwide.
