The top U.N. human rights official has said he would not be surprised if a court one day ruled that acts of genocide had been committed against the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar, according to a television interview to be shown on Monday.Myanmar denies committing atrocities against the Rohingya and has previously rejected U.N. criticism for its "politicization and partiality". The Myanmar military says the crackdown is a legitimate counterinsurgency operation.Myanmar is not a member of the International Criminal Court, so referral to that court could be done only by the U.N. Security Council.The United Nations defines genocide as acts meant to destroy a national, ethnic, racial or religious group in whole or in part.
