The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Thursday will deliver its verdict on a case related to genocide of the Rohingya filed by Gambia against Myanmar.

In a public sitting at the Peace Palace in The Hague, ICJ President Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf will read the court’s order at 10:00 am local time (0900GMT).

The ICJ heard the arguments presented by Gambia and Myanmar in December of last year.

The West African country has asked the ICJ for “provisional measures” to stop further violence against the Rohingya, a persecuted minority Muslim community in Myanmar.
