Peter Maurer, the president of the Swiss-led International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), has refuted claims that humanitarian organisations failed to act in time in Myanmar to protect the Rohingya people, despite awareness of tensions.
Maurer was speaking as part of a panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos. He explained, “You rarely know when the degradation and spiral will happen. We see fragile contexts but don’t know which ones will blow up on our face."(Matthew Allen/Carlo Pisani. swissinfo.ch)
