AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Myanmar has filed a first report with the U.N.’s highest court on its adherence to measures imposed in January to protect the Muslim minority Rohingya, the court said on Monday.

The Gambia filed a suit against Myanmar accusing it of violating the 1948 Genocide Convention. A panel of 17 judges unanimously supported imposing so-called provisional measures on Myanmar to protect any evidence of crimes and prevent acts of violence.

Judges instructed Myanmar to update them every six months until a final ruling in the case.

Details of the report were not immediately released by the court.
