Posthumous trial of Ziaur Rahman will also be ensured, says the state minister
State Minister for Information and Broadcasting Dr Md Murad Hassan has said that the government is leaving no stone unturned to bring back Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's self-confessed killer Noor Chowdhury from Canada.
"Our government is making every effort for the deportation of Noor Chowdhury from Canada who was sentenced to death in the murder case of the Father of the Nation," he said.
The state minister was speaking as the chief guest at a views-exchange meeting, in support of the demand for the immediate repatriation of Noor Chowdhury, jointly organized by the Awami League chapter of Canada, the Quebec Awami League and Canadian Jubo League on Saturday.
Murad also asked the Bangali people living in Canada to be united in demanding the extradition of the killer.
He hoped that the trial of the fugitive murderers of the Father of the Nation would be completed under the prudent leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, daughter of Bangabandhu.
"Bangabandhu's fugitive self-confessed murderer Noor Chowdhury will be brought back to Bangladesh and the death sentence will be executed, and besides, the posthumous trial of the main killer and mastermind, Ziaur Rahman, will also be ensured," he added.
With the President of Canada Awami League Golam Mohammad Mahmud Mia in the chair, the program was attended, among others, by Bangladesh High Commissioner to Canada Dr Khalilur Rahman and the founding president of the Awami League of Canada, Sarwar Hossain, as special guest.
Leaders of the Quebec Awami League and the Canada Jubo League were also present on the occasion.
