Myanmar unwilling to investigate abuses against Rohingya: UN

The United Nations has said that Myanmar is unable and unwilling to investigate abuses against Rohingya Muslims.

The UN special rapporteur to Myanmar Yanghee Lee urged the the United Nations to take Myanmar issue to the International Criminal Court immediately.

Meanwhile, Myanmar has dismissed the allegations, slamming the UN body as biased and said that the government has set up its own committee to investigate the crimes.

A UN fact-finding mission has called for Myanmar's top brass to be investigated for genocide against Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine state.
