ICC investigation team is in Bangladesh for Rohingya issue.

ICC, International Criminal Court Attorney General Karim AA Khan and his team are in Bangladesh and met with Bangladesh Foreign Minister Abdul Momin on July 4.

UNB, a Bangladesh news agency, reported that the foreign minister urged the Rohingya genocide case to be resolved as soon as possible.

He also said that the delay in getting justice is the same as injustice.

Attorney General Karim Khan heads the ICC's investigative team that will examine the crimes committed by the Myanmar military against the Rohingya.

During his four-day visit to Bangladesh, he is going to meet with Rohingya refugees from Cox's Bazar and explain the ICC's work to get justice.

This is the second visit by the ICC investigation team. "Justice will not happen overnight, but we need to work together," Attorney General Karim Khan told reporters after his first visit last year.

The ICC is investigating the incident that caused hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas to flee to Bangladesh at the hands of the Myanmar military.

The United States has declared this act to be genocide committed by the Burmese military.

In addition, after the military coup on February 1, 2021, the military council led by General Min Aung Hlaing killed nearly 3500 people.

Not only the Rohingya issue, but also for the military coup and terrorist acts, there are efforts to prosecute the military leaders in the ICC court.

International human rights groups are demanding that the United Nations Security Council transfer the Myanmar issue to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
