He demands a review against life imprisonment of the Jamaat leader

State Minister for Information and Broadcasting Dr Md Murad Hassan has said that, being a war crimes convict, Jamaat-e-Islami leader Delawar Hossain Sayedee does not deserve the comfort of imprisonment instead of death penalty.

“He cannot be allowed to stay in jail in comfort in the country, which earned its independence at the cost of three million lives,” Murad told a rally by Bangladesh Muktijoddha Mancha in front of the National Museum on Thursday to celebrate the golden jubilee of the country’s independence.

He demanded a review of the apex court verdict that handed down the imprisonment until death and instead sentence him to death. 

Murad also referred to a prayer by the attorney general seeking the review.

“We will continue our movement for his death penalty until he is executed,” Murad said, calling Sayedee a genocide mastermind in Pirojpur in 1971.

Former Supreme Court judge Justice Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik and Swadhinata Chikitsak Parishad (Swachip) Joint Secretary General Uttam Kumar Barua were present at the rally among others.

Muktijoddha Mancha President Aminul Islam chaired the rally, where other speakers demanded quick implementation of the war crimes verdicts and disposal of the appeals cases pending with the apex court.

The International Crimes Tribunal-1 on February 28, 2013 sentenced the Jamaat leader to death for killing Ibrahim Kutti and Bisa Bali in Pirojpur during the Liberation War.

Following two appeals by Sayedee and the government, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on September 17, 2014 commuted his death sentence to imprisonment until death.

He is also facing a number of cases filed for corruption and Zakat fund embezzlement.
