Aung San Suu Kyi could not escape arrest if convicted in ICC: Shahriar

State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam has said that the top 20 leaders of Myanmar, including Aung San Suu Kyi, could not escape arrest if ICC delivers verdict convicting them.

He came up with the disclosure while speaking at a round table titled ‘Necessity of Rohingya repatriation considering regional and global perspective’ at National Press Club in the capital on Monday.

He said, “It is not a matter whether Myanmar is a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC) or International Court of Justice (ICJ); if the verdict over Rohingya genocide case goes against the top 20 leaders, including Suu Kyi, all countries will be forced to accept the verdict. So, even if they flee to another country, they must be arrested.”

He said that once the ICC delivers verdict over Rohingya assassination, there will be pressure on every country including Myanmar to solve the crisis. Then, the ruling leaders of Myanmar have no way to escape.”
