Ali Riaz published a commentary piece on Myanmar’s Rohingya crisis in Bangladesh’s Daily Star. The article titled “Is Myanmar changing its tune?” argues that “Bangladesh’s decision to respond to the ICC’s request regarding the Rohingya situation, particularly about the territorial jurisdiction of ICC, is a welcome development.” Riaz adds that “it’s encouraging to see that Bangladesh, at least presently, is making a prudent move to consider options beyond the bilateral arrangement with Myanmar regarding repatriations of about 750,000 refugees.”
