Order on charge-framing against 6 war crimes accused June 28
The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) will pass its order on June 28 on framing charges against six alleged war criminals of Gaibandha.
The three-member tribunal, headed by Justice Anwarul Haque, fixed the date on Thursday.
The six accused are former Jamaat MP Abu Saleh Mohammad Abdul Aziz Miah alias Ghoramara Aziz, M Ruhul Amin alias Monju, M Abdul Latif, Abu Muslem Mohammad Ali, M Nazmul Huda and M Abdur Rahim Miah.
Prosecutor Barrister Sayedul Haque Sumon stood for the state and Advocate Gazi M H Tamim argued for the accused during the hearing on Thursday.
Earlier on March 21 last, the prosecution submitted formal charges against the six alleged war criminals for their crimes against humanity during the War of Liberation in 1971.
On November 26 last year, the tribunal issued a warrant for the arrest of the six war crimes accused.
There were three specific charges against them.
In a particular incident, the accused gunned down 13 people, all of whom were people’s representatives, in Sundarganj of Gaibandha.
