A Rohingya activist has told Radio Islam the Independent Commission of Enquiry (ICOE) report is to “protect criminals from prosecution”. A commission set up to investigate the 2017 crackdown in Rakhine led hundreds of thousands of mostly Muslim Rohingya to flee Myanmar.

The report released on Monday to the country’s president Aung San Suu Kyi concludes that while some soldiers probably committed war crimes there was no genocide.

The report comes a few days before the United Nations' top court is set to rule on whether to impose urgent measures to stop the alleged continuing genocide in Myanmar.

Speaking to Radio Islam, Nay San Lwin says the release of the report’s findings is a "blatant PR exercise to deflect attention from the International Court and that the security forces are trying to get away from being prosecuted for genocide.

“As Myanmar is not a signatory of the Rome Statute, the International Criminal Court cannot also sue Myanmar criminals for these cases or these crimes. That is basically the report, to protect the criminals from prosecution.”

The four-member commission included two international representatives and was led by Rosario Manalo, a former deputy foreign minister of the Philippines. Lwin says Manalo has a friendship with Myanmar.

“We can see clearly that the relationship between them is friendly. They have a very good friendship and she was ready to cover-up all the crimes committed by the general that is why she was convinced to write this report.” The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is set to announce on Thursday its ruling on a case filed by Gambia against Myanmar on the persecution of the Rohingya.
