Canadian lawyer criticized for volte-face on Myanmar genocide

Canadian lawyer William Schabas, a scholar on genocide, has been criticized for defending the state of Myanmar. Schabas helped research a report in 2010 on systematic attacks against the Rohingya, which concluded then that they met the international threshold of crimes against humanity. This week Schabas stood alongside Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi at the ICC denying the genocide.
