A Bradford MP has highlighted in Parliament the persecution of the Rohingya people in Burma.

David Ward (Lib Dem, Bradford East) has called on the Government to work to establish an international investigation into violations of international law against the Rohingyas.

He has tabled an Early Day Motion to raise the issue.

He said: “The Burmese government has proved time and time again that it is clearly not willing to take substantial action to either investigate or end violence and discrimination against the Rohingya people.”
