Tureen Afroz has been removed from the post of International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) prosecutor. 

The Law and Justice Division of the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs issued a notice on Monday in this regard. The order will be effective from today, November 11. 

According to the notice, Tureen Afroz was removed from the post of International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) prosecutor for breaching discipline and professional conduct and committing serious misconduct.

In 2018, the chief prosecutor's office of ICT alleged that prosecutor Tureen Afroz held a secret meeting with Muhammad Wahidul Haque, a war crimes suspect and former head of the National Security Intelligence (NSI) and the Department of Immigration and Passports, at a hotel in Dhaka's Gulshan area. 

Chief Prosecutor of ICT Ghulam Arief Tipoo handed over the evidence and audio record of the allegation to the law ministry. Later in May last year, the tribunal pulled Tureen out of all cases.
