Abstract: 

On Sunday, February 27, 2022, Karim A. A. Khan, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), concluded the first visit by an ICC prosecutor to Bangladesh.  Khan’s visit was prompted by the alleged crimes being committed against the Rohingya refugees from Myanmar.  He asserted that he would prioritize investigation into this matter during his leadership.  He confirmed his intention to accelerate the collection and analysis of evidence in support of the claims which was previously hindered by the Covid-19 pandemic, and that he has dedicated additional resources to the process.
