The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) on Monday has fixed Tuesday to announce the verdict against five Gaibandha men for committing heinous crimes against humanity during the Liberation War of 1971.

The three-member tribunal was headed by the Justice Md Justice Shahinur Islam.

The accused in the case are Md Ranju Mia, Abdul Jabbar Mondol, Md Jasijar Rahman Khoka, Md Abdul Wahed Mondol and Md Momtaz Ali Bepari. Among them, only Ranju is in custody, while the others are absconding.

The ICT adjourned the judgement for the matter, after hearing the closing arguments from both sides on July 21.

Six people were initially accused in the case, but one of the suspects, Azgar Hossain Khan, died before the case went to trial.

The prosecution has taken four charges against them for crimes committed against humanity, which includes murder, mass killing, abduction, torture, and rape.

The trial proceedings commenced after the charges against the others were framed on May 17, 2018.

All the accused were either involved in or with Jamaat-e-Islami or later enlisted with the Razakar force, collaborating with the Pakistan Army during the Liberation War.
