The report has been finalized after more than two and half years of investigation
The investigation agency of the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) has finalized its report on a probe into the alleged crimes against humanity committed during the 1971 Liberation War by four men from Noakhali.
The probe body did not release the identities of the accused since all of the accused are absconding.
Probe body’s Chief Coordinator Mohammad Abdul Hannan Khan and Co-coordinator Md Sanaul Haque unveiled the report at the 78th press briefing held at its Dhanmondi office on Wednesday.
Sanaul said that the investigation against the four accused started on November 12, 2017. The investigation was completed on Wednesday (August 12) after two years and nine months.
If the situation becomes normal, the investigation report will be submitted to the prosecution of the tribunal, he added.
According to the investigation agency, the four accused were members of Islami Chhatra Sangha, the then student wing of anti-liberation Jamaat-e-Islami, and a member of the Razakar Bahini during the Liberation War. Later they joined Jamaat-e-Islami and one of them later joined BNP.
The ICT investigation agency brought three charges of “crimes against humanity” including murder of 11 persons, including freedom fighters.
Assigned investigation officer (IO) Shahjahan Kabir collected 114 pages documents and prepared a 222-page report, in four volumes, to submit before the tribunal.
