Standing with #RohingyaWomen: Press Conference Today

Nobel Women Delegation 2018, held a press conference today in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Nobel peace laureates Tawakkol Karman, Shirin Ebadi and Mairead Maguire, addressed what they have heard and witnessed during their visit to Rohingya refugee camps near Cox’s Bazar and the no man’s land between the Bangladeshi and Burmese border. They called for an immediate end to the Rohingya genocide in Burma, and for sister laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi, to put an end to the persecution of the Rohingya people or face prosecution herself at the International Criminal Court.
