War Crimes Trial: HC order on petitions tomorrow

The High Court will pass orders tomorrow on the petitions filed by five detained leaders of Bangladesh Jamaat-e Islami for quashing the proceedings of International Crimes Tribunal against them in connection with crimes against humanity in 1971.

On conclusion of the hearing on the petitions, an HC bench of Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice AKM Abdul Hakim yesterday fixed the date for orders.

Detained Jamaat Ameer Motiur Rahman Nizami, Secretary General Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed, Nayeb-e-Amir Delwar Hossain Sayedee, Assistant Secretary General Muhammad Kamaruzzaman and leader Abdul Kader Mollah filed five separate petitions through their lawyers on September 29 this year.
They also prayed to the HC to grant them bail in the war crimes cases.
