The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT)-1 today concluded its hearing in crimes against humanity case against five alleged Razakars from Gaibandha and will pronounce judgment any day.

On Sunday, the three-member International Crimes Tribunal, headed by Shahinur Islam, passed the order.

Prosecutor in the court was Mokhlesur Rahman Badal. The defendant was Abul Hasan, the lawyer. There were six accused in the case. Among them, Md. Ranju Mia was arrested and imprisoned.

 

The five accused are-Md Ranju Miah, Md Abdul Jabbar Mondol, Md Jachijar Rahman alias Khoka, Md Abdul Wahed Mondol and Md Montaz Ali Bepari. Of the five, only Ronju is behind bars and all other accused were tried in absentia.

Justice Md Shahinur Islam, chairman of the three-member panel of the ICT-1, kept the verdict on CAV, curia advisari vult (a Latin legal term meaning the court awaits judgment), as the prosecution and defense concluded their arguments in the case.

The ICT-1 on May 17, 2018, framed four charges of crimes against humanity against the accused including abduction, confinement, torture and murder.

All the accused were supporters of Jamaat-e-Islami and later joined Razakar Bahini as the war began in 1971.
