Government opposes relocation of war tribunal

On August 18, the Supreme Court sent a letter to the Law Ministry to relocate the tribunal elsewhere by October 31 citing lack of enough room to accommodate courts and chambers. Even the officials and staff of the Supreme Court’s registrar office are also not getting chambers or chairs.

On Sunday, the Law Ministry sent a letter to the registrar general's office of the Supreme Court.

The ministry said that relocation of the tribunal stopping the war crimes trial procedures would not be accepted by the mass people, rather they would question the apex court.

It is a historical building built as the public residence for the governor of East Bengal and Assam. The building was later turned into the East Pakistan's High Court.

The present government used the building as the war crimes tribunal as no safer place was found, the ministry said. Previously, it had been used as the office of the Law Commission and the Bangladesh Judicial Service Commission.

The Law Ministry said that the historical value of the building was increased since many notorious war criminals had been tried here at the tribunal. People of the country want the historical building to be preserved, the letter said.
