The Prosecutors of the International Criminal Court (ICC) recently started an investigation regarding the alleged atrocities committed against the Rohingya refugee population, primarily regarding the deportation of around 600,000 - 1,000,000 refugees from Myanmar to Bangladesh. On the 14th of November, 2019, the judges of the ICC authorized the investigation, which was to be conducted regarding any crimes committed on or after the 1st of June, 2010, when Bangladesh joined the ICC. An additional question relate to jurisdiction arose seeing as a number of the committed acts of violence occurred on the Bangladesh border and Myanmar is not a part of the ICC as they have not ratified the Rome Statute
