THE INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE GRANTS GAMBIA TIME FOR MEMORIAL FILLING

The International Court of Justice has extended time for the filing of the Memorial of the Gambia and the Counter-Memorial of Myanmar in the case concerning Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

 In a letter dated 24th April, The Gambia requested the Court to grant at least a three-month extension for the filing of the Memorial, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 The Gambia noted that, “the principle of equality of arms would entitle Myanmar to a similar extension of time for filing its Counter-Memorial”.

In January, the ICJ unanimously ruled in favour of the Gambia and ordered Myanmar to “take all measures within its power” to protect Rohingya minority population from genocide.
