PV Desk : The World Court’s orders will bring an end to the persecution of the Rohingya, the refugees hope after their first major legal victory over the Myanmar authorities.
They believe it will be possible for them to return to their homeland from Bangladesh if pressure now mounts on Myanmar to implement the order of the International Court of Justice.
The refugees residing in camps at Ukhiya and Teknaf in Cox’s Bazar began discussing what the initial ruling of the top United Nations court would possibly be on Thursday morning.
The crowds at the shops and in front of TV were getting larger by noon and finally the court passed the orders sometime after 3:30pm local time.
Myanmar must take urgent measures to protect its Rohingya population from genocide and report back within four months, the court said.
