2 Habiganj war criminals seeks review of death sentences

বৃহস্পতিবার, ৩০ জুন ২০১৬

30 June 2016 Two war criminals of Habiganj today filed an appeal with the Supreme Court challenging a special tribunal’s verdict that had handed down death sentence to one while life term imprisonment to another.

The two war criminals are Muhibur Rahman alias Boromian, 65, and Abdur Razzak, 63.

International Crimes Tribunal-1 on June 1 sentenced Mohibur to death and Razzak to life imprisonment for their crimes against humanity during the country’s 1971 Liberation War.

Another convict Mujibur Rahman alias Angur Mian, 60, who was awarded to life term jail, is yet to file an appeal in the war crimes case. Mujibur is Muhibur’s brother and Razzak is their cousin.

Today, Muhibur and Razzak submitted a 28-page appeal through their lawyer seeking acquittal of all the charges brought against them.

M Masud Rana, a lawyer for Muhibur and Razzak, told The Daily Star that his clients mentioned 10 grounds in the appeal so that the SC can consider their acquittal prayer.

Citing the appeal, he said Muhibur and Razzak were not involved in crimes against humanity.

The SC will later fix a date for hearing the appeal, he added.
