ICTs to merge from Sunday

বৃহস্পতিবার, ০৩ সেপ্টেম্বর ২০১৫

03 September 2015 The government has initiated a process to merge two international crimes tribunals, which will start working from Sunday, Law Minister Anisul Huq told The Daily Star today.

The initiative has been taken since the number of their pending cases has come down, the minister said adding, “a gazette notification might be issued to this effect later in the day.”

The government has started the process to merge the tribunals into a single tribunal in consultation with the Supreme Court, he said.

A law ministry high official, requesting anonymity, told this correspondent that although a single tribunal will work, another tribunal will not be abolished.

The tribunal will remain inactive and its judges will work for the High Court, Anisul said adding that the other tribunal, if it is felt necessary, will be made active for the disposal of the cases, he added.

The Awami League-led government formed the first tribunal on March 25, 2010, in line with the party's electoral pledge to try people who committed crimes against humanity during the Liberation War.

The second tribunal was formed on March 22, 2012, to expedite the trials of war crimes related offences.
