Judgement in Salauddin Quader Chowdhury verdict leak case deferred again

  • Published at 12:56 am August 29th, 2016
Judge KM Shamsul Alam of Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal re-fixed the date as the judge could not prepare the verdict completely, Md Nazrul Islam Shamim, special public prosecutor of the tribunal, told the Dhaka Tribune. After recording the closing arguments on August 4, the tribunal set August 14 for pronouncing the verdict, but it was deferred until yesterday on the same ground. The accused in the case are SQ Chowdhury’s wife Farhat Quader Chowdhury, son Hummam Quader Chowdhury, manager Mahbubul Ahsan and counsel barrister Fakhrul Islam; Fakhrul’s assistant Mehedi Hasan, and war crimes tribunal’s office staff Faruk Hossain and Nayan Ali. Of them, all but Mehedi – absconding since the filing of the case – were on bail. Hummam was allegedly picked up by plainclothes police from near the court on August 4 when he was going to the court with his mother on a microbus. According to the charge sheet, the accused in connivance with each other leaked parts of the draft verdict from the tribunal chairman’s computer and uploaded it on different websites a day before the judgement was delivered on October 1, 2013 to make the war crimes trial controversial. Family of the former BNP lawmaker made huge investments to leak the draft verdict, the case says. Salauddin’s wife and son hatched conspiracy and instigated the leak while Fakhrul facilitated it. Mehedi, Mahbubul, Faruk and Nayan were directly involved in the crime, according to the charge sheet. If found guilty, the accused may face highest 14 years’ imprisonment or up to Tk1 crore in fines or both as per law. Salauddin was executed at Dhaka Central Jail on November 22 last year.
