The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court will deliver its judgment any day against war criminal and Jamaat leader ATM Azharul Islam.

The four-member bench of the Appellate Division, headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, on Wednesday completed hearing of arguments from both the state and defense on an appeal, filed by Azharul challenging the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) verdict that sentenced him to death.  

On June 18, the Appellate Division started the hearing on the appeal filed the war criminal.

On December 30, 2014, ICT-1 gave Jamaat-e-Islami Assistant Secretary General ATM Azharul Islam a death sentence for his war crimes committed in Rangpur. He was found guilty on five of six charges.

Azhar filed his appeal on January 28, 2015.
