Could Aung San Suu Kyi face Rohingya genocide charges?

Earlier this month the human rights chief called for a criminal investigation.

But now Mr Zeid says he cannot rule out the possibility of military and government leaders facing charges of genocide.

“The gravity and the scale would suggest a commission of a crime that requires a response by the international community,” he told the BBC.

“The question of intentionality going back to the genocidal acts … it’s very hard to establish that because the thresholds are high. And that’s why we continue to say that a court has to do this. But it wouldn’t surprise me in the future if a court were to make such a finding on the basis of what we’re seeing.

“Because of the organisation and planning that seems to have gone into this. We can infer that from the actions on the ground.”

Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, is determined that the perpetrators of the horrors committed against the Rohingya face justice.

He’s the head of the UN’s watchdog for human rights across the world, so his opinions carry weight.

It could go right to the top – he doesn’t rule out the possibility that civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and the head of the armed forces Gen Aung Min Hlaing, could find themselves in the dock on genocide charges some time in the future.

Earlier this month, Mr Zeid told the UN Human Rights Council that the widespread and systematic nature of the persecution of the Rohingya in Myanmar (also called Burma) meant that genocide could not be ruled out.

“Given the scale of the military operation, clearly these would have to be decisions taken at a high level,” said the high commissioner, when we met at the UN headquarters in Geneva for BBC Panorama.
