THE HAGUE, Dec 10 ­— Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi is set today to personally defend Myanmar in The Hague against accusations of genocide, in a remarkable fall from grace for the woman once hailed as a rights icon.

Protests by opponents and supporters are expected outside the UN’s top court for the arrival of Suu Kyi, who was once mentioned in the same breath as Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi.

“I demand justice from the world,” said Nur Karima, a Rohingya refugee whose brothers and grandparents were killed in a massacre in the village of Tula Toli in August 2017.

“The genocidal acts committed during these operations were intended to destroy the Rohingya as a group, in whole or in part, by the use of mass murder, rape and other forms of sexual violence,” Gambia said in its submission to the court.

She is due to speak tomorrow, and is expected to argue that the court has no jurisdiction and that Myanmar was targeting Rohingya militants.

Suu Kyi’s appearance at the ICJ will be a far cry from her previous visits to Europe.

But her silence over the Rohingya has led to calls for her to be stripped of her Nobel, while Canada revoked her honourary citizenship.
