Three sentenced to death for war crimes in Noakhali
The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) has sentenced three war criminals, including razakar Amir Ahmed, alias Amir Ali, to death in a case filed over crimes against humanity in 1971 Liberation War of Bangladesh. A three-member tribunal headed by the ICT Chairman Justice Md Shahinur Islam delivered the verdict on Tuesday. The other two convicts are Abul Kalam alias AKM Mansur and Joynal Abedin. The tribunal also handed down a jail term of 20 years to another convict named Abdul Kuddus. Another accused of the case, Md Yusuf has been acquitted, due to his death caused by old age complications. On February 6, the tribunal concluded the hearing of arguments from both sides on the trial of the four men for their alleged involvement in crimes against humanity during the war in 1971 in Noakhali’s Sudharampur and kept the verdict pending. The prosecution pressed charges against five people, including the four in the war crimes case. As another accused of the case, M Yusuf, died after the pressing of the charges, he was not indicted. On June 20, 2016, the tribunal framed three specific charges against four people for their alleged involvement in war crimes. The investigators started the probe against the five suspected war criminals on November 16, 2014 and submitted a report before the prosecution on August 31, 2015. Three charges include killing of over 100 people, including 41 of Sonapur and Sreepur villages, in Sudarampur on June 15 in 1971.   This article was first published on banglatribune.com
