On Thursday 15 March 2018, Michael Polak from Church Court Chambers’ international team appeared on a panel in a House of Commons Committee room put together for the launch of a report on the situation regarding the Rohingya in Myanmar, They Ran For Their Lives. Michael spoke about the international law on universal jurisdiction and immunities as well as the procedure in England and Wales for the commencement of prosecutions under the universal jurisdiction provisions in English law.

The event was hosted by Stephen Gethins MP, and Michael was joined on the panel by human rights activist Yvonne Ridley, head of the International Relief Organisation Mamdooh Badawi, and Myanmar expert Dr Maung Zarni.
