The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT)-1 is set to pronounce its judgement on Tuesday in crimes against humanity case against five alleged Razakars from Gaibandha.

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.

The ICT-1 on July 21 kept the judgement on CAV, curia advisari vult (a Latin legal term meaning the court awaits judgement), as the hearing in the case was concluded on that day.

The first tribunal 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.
