The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) is set to deliver the verdict on four people suspected of crimes against humanity during the 1971 Liberation War on Tuesday

The three member tribunal led by Justice Shahinur Islam fixed the date on Monday, reports UNB.

The four suspects are Akmal Ali Talukdar, Abdur Nur Talukdar alias Lal Miah, Anis Miah and Abdul Mosabbir Miah.

All of the four are accused of committing acts of genocide, murder, abduction and torture at Panchgaon and Paschimbhag villages in Rajnagar upazila of Moulvibazar, from May 7 to November 24 in 1971.

Akmal Ali is currently in prison, while the others are absconding.

Charges were framed against the accused on May 7, 2017, and the hearing of arguments from both the prosecution and defence concluded on March 27 this year.

On November 26, 2015, the ICT issued warrants for the arrest of the four suspected war criminals, and police arrested Akmal Ali from his village home.
