Adama Dieng, special adviser to the UN Secretary General on the Prevention of Genocide, did not rule out that actions against Rohingya Muslims could be recognized by the court as genocide, Report informs, citing the RIA Novosti.

Dieng stressed that only the court should determine whether these can be called genocidal actions. Moreover, the adviser said that whatever the legal definition, “Perpetrators of violence should be brought to justice. I met with Rohingya refugees. I twice visited Bangladesh Cox’s Bazar. I heard their stories. An independent panel of experts concluded that what happened amounted to genocide,” Dieng said.
