An all-woman legal team who went to help the Rohingya get justice after suffering war crimes at the hands of Myanmar’s military have just released a hard-hitting report on their findings which will be unveiled in Westminster this week.
The team, led by South African lawyer Shabnam Mayet is now confident that sworn affidavits collected by the women can and will be used against the globe-trotting generals and politicians in Myanmar who think they’re above the law – they’re not!
Their findings will be discussed in Portcullis House on Thursday morning in Committee Room N at 11am in a meeting hosted by Stephen Gethins, MP, a member of Foreign Affairs Committee and Shadow SNP Spokesperson for International Affairs and Europe.
The contents of the report were collated by advocate Shabnam Mayet from Johannesburg, the co-founder of campaign group Protect the Rohingya, advocate Shaida Mahomed of Johannesburg and attorney Tasneem Fredericks of Port Elizabeth. They were joined in Cox Bazar by Scottish WTX NEWS journalist Yvonne Ridley and the team was assisted by Bangladeshi lawyer and academic Rezaur Rahman Lenin.
