Public relations chief of the Palapa Sakti Nusantara Unifier Foundation (LPSNPB), Lahane Aziz called systematic violence or persecution allegedly carried out by the Myanmar government against ethnic Rohingya Muslim minorities should be brought to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for trial.

According to LPSNPB Head of Public Relations throughout Indonesia, Aziz said that what is happening in Myanmar is clearly a crime against humanity and that is one of the issues that is the authority of the ICC. So Aziz, it's a matter of systematic violence or persecution so can not justify the problem, it concerns humanity then Myanmar should be prosecuted even if it is not a member of the international judicial institution, he said.

"LPSNPB expects it to be easy to take to ICC even if Myanmar is not a member of the ICC and does not ratify the Rome Statute, it only protects a group, not protecting all humanity. Then it can not necessarily be submitted to the ICC, "said Aziz, it is deviated not social but commercial, he explained in Surabaya - Indonesia, Friday (15/9).

Nevertheless, Aziz said there is still an opportunity for the international community to take the case to the ICC. One of them is by pushing the United Nations Security Council to give firm resolutions and strong conclusions that there has been a serious crime in Myanmar. "If there is a political decision from the UNSC, this humanitarian crisis could be raised to the ICC. Although, the resolution at the UN Security Council may be vetoed by allies of Myanmar such as China and even Russia, "said Aziz.

Even so far, China and Russia are not very vocal response to the humanitarian crisis in Rakhine like other countries. So far, Beijing and Moscow have only expressed support for Myanmar's efforts to maintain the stability and security of its country. At least 1,000 people, particularly Rohingyas, are thought to have been killed since the humanitarian crisis in Rakhine again flared up by militant clashes and militants in the region, Aug. 25.

Then since then, hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas and other ethnic minorities have reportedly fled out Rakhine or Myanmar and fled to neighboring countries like Bangladesh, Thailand and Malaysia. Amid such a precarious situation, Myanmar is suspected of using landmines planted in border areas with Bangladesh to prevent refugees from returning to Rakhine.

Meanwhile so far, Amnesty International has counted five Rohingya refugees who were victims of the mines. "It is clear, the testimony of Rohingya refugees and our sources in Myanmar, especially Rakhine, that there is a systematic attack from the Burmese apparatus against Rohingya," Aziz said.
