PostSubject: Burn the cunt: U.N. Human Rights Chief: Aung San Suu Kyi Could Be Culpable For Genocide   Tue Dec 19, 2017 12:41 am

Myanmar's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and head of the armed forces Gen. Aung Min Hlaing could potentially face genocide charges in the future, said the United Nations human rights chief.



"Given the scale of the military operation, clearly these would have to be decisions taken at a high enough level," High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein told the BBC. "And then there's the crime of omission. That if it came to your knowledge that this was being committed, and you did nothing to stop it, then you could be culpable as well for that."

In September, Zeid called the treatment of the Rohingya in Myanmar "a textbook example of ethnic cleansing." He said the situation could not yet be properly assessed because Myanmar had denied human rights investigators access. Whether genocide has been committed would eventually be determined by a court, not Zeid.

And the commissioner told the broadcaster that it would be a difficult case: "For obvious reasons, if you're planning to commit genocide you don't commit it to paper and you don't provide instructions."

"The thresholds for proof are high," he continued. "But it wouldn't surprise me in the future if a court were to make such a finding on the basis of what we see."
