Bangladesh war crime: Kamaruzzaman gets death sentence

by Ani 1:12 mins

A Bangladesh war crimes tribunal convicted and sentenced Jamaat-e-Islami party leader Mohammad Kamaruzzaman to death on Thursday, triggering fears of a repeat of clashes between police and protesters after similar sentences were handed down earlier this year. Mohammad Kamaruzzaman, assistant secretary general of the Jamaat-e-Islami party, was found guilty of genocide and torture of unarmed civilians during the 1971 war for independence from Pakistan, lawyers and tribunal officials said. However, defence lawyer Abdur Razzaq rejected the verdict and said that Kamaruzzaman would appeal. Meanwhile, Bangladesh has put its security forces on high alert in wake of the verdict.
